When I was little, my Dad. I totally adored him and actually I still do.

When I was a teenager in school, the poet Robert Frost.

In San Francisco when I was 20, John Fogerty, singer/songwriter and guitar player who led a famous band called Creedence Clearwater Revival. I still love his music. Politically I looked up a lot to Dr. King.

Now ... back to my Dad. \:\)

I think my sister. She is always who I've looked up to the most in life. \:\)

Or else some teachers I had in high school...

My parents would be my first choice. I can only thank God for that.

I can think of a lot of great names. Here's a few for the list :

Mother Theresa of Calcutta

Martin Luther King

Golden Meier one of Isreal's Prime Ministers

Nelson Mandela

My choice as the most noted American in the last century
would have to be J.F.K.
Interestingly; He was shot and killed on my sixth birthday
November 22ond, 1963.

Much speculation surrounds his death to this very day.
Lee Harvey Oswald I think was the fall guy
So who killed JFK...was it J. Edger Hoover or the C.I.A. ?
Guess wiil never know the mystery behind the murders of JFK or Marilyn Monroe.

My maternal grandfather, who I was named after. His mother died when he was a small child and his father ran out on the family so he was raised by his grandparents, but I never saw anything bitter in him. He was one of the kindest people I've ever known.

VERY GOOD TOPIC Lynch!

You know what? I never had one. I liked my Dad, but I never thought that he was was exceptional in any way. I didn't have any other male role models in my life that I respected or admired. At the same time, not a single male in my early life took me under his wing and showed me how the world works, or helped me to augment a personal trait or talent or skill that I had.

I never had a mentor of any kind when I grew up. It SHOULD have been my Dad, but since I always subconsciously held a quite bit of contempt for him (and my Mom) for letting me be sexually abused, that was never able to happen.

I really can't think of a role model in my life. I think it is because I never could feel I could trust anyone. Same today, I don't let anyone get to close to me. Seems if I do feel I can trust them, they end up bailing out on me.

So I find life today easier to have friends that don't know all of me. Just enough to be friends, but not enough to be really close to me.

My early role model was the Tiger's Willie Horton, the left fielder back in the 1960s to 1970s. He was then one of the only African Americans on an otherwise almost all white team. He was one of the guys but he was also different, which was a lot like my position at the time. These days he is very active with a number of causes in Detroit's inner city, so he is still a role model. And I'll never forget when I shook Mayor Coleman Young's hand. Or Cleveland Mayor Michael White's hand, or Denver Mayor Wellington Webb's hand either.

My dad was a lot more like Gordie Howe. A real tough guy who liked to fight and make others look bad. It took forever to overcome his shadow.
