My first coach—and still the best I have ever known—my father Tom Masich, passed away on Sept. 18 at age 86. He inspired his community with his volunteer service, to the  point that the local stadium was renamed for him as a sign of appreciation for his contributions. His half-century involvement in athletics and youth development reverberates in the lives of thousands.

Dad red and blue

If I possess, in any small way, decency and kindness as a human being, skill at coaching, or curiosity for life, it is because these qualities were passed to me by my father. I once invited Dad to give a talk at one of my 5 Section Taijiquan Intensives. In reference to taiji push-hands, Dad said,

‘Touching passes knowledge electronically

through the high-tension wire.’

He taught by deed and example. He followed his heart. He inspired until he expired. Here, is a wonderful article about Dad contributed by my brother Bill Masich. And another interview with me about Dad.

A tribute to Dad a couple years ago for his work with the UNBC Timberwolves Women's Basketball team.
