Digital tombstone (preemptive)

Epitaph: Paul Moxnes, writer, husband, father and grandfather, b. 1942, d. 20xx. He was a quite stubborn scholar, creative at times, with mostly sole authored papers. He had a passion for organizational psychology and an unexplained love for categorizing human behavior.  A life-long devoted jogger. In his last years, a heart for cold swims.
