In Memory of Patrick Bommarito, Resident DJ of Disco Baby, Tokyo
R.I.P J Patrick Bommarito (October 12, 1965 - April 15, 2013). I didn't find out until early this month from my girlfriend that you had AIDS, she had told me that she seen you on TV a few times and she even went to a screening/speech you gave about your life before. When I confirmed that she was in fact talking about you I was taken aback because I had never met anyone in my life personally suffering with that disease before.
When I had first met you, it was around circa late 2007/early 2008. You were the floor manager of 57 Fifty Seven in Roppongi, and I came in to meet you and look around the place as I was interested in becoming a resident DJ at 57 before there ever was a resident DJ. You were a nice guy, well mannered, and well groomed, fashionable. I respected you.
So sorry to find out your life was so hard. To pass on at 47 years old (which is young), I'm glad to know that you at least got to live half a life, and were able to leave your mark in at least one place in the world, Tokyo. Take it easy "Disco Baby".
