January 12, 1970 – April 18, 2020
Bobby Pin–our inspiring, amusing, loving friend–died on 18 April 2020 in Maui Memorial Hospital of COVID-19. He put up a 4-week fight, with friends and family making heroic efforts to obtain treatments for his disease. He is survived by his loving parents Vin and Loeuy Pin, his sister Mai, his younger brother Paul, his nephew Zachary and niece Chloe in Michigan, his many relatives worldwide, and his partner of 10 years, Daniel Rex Greening. He just turned 50 in Jan. 2020.
Bobby was a force of nature. He produced several short films, created mixed media and performance art, produced many gorgeous portraits and photographs, worked many film festivals, and helped manage the Burning Man documentation team.
Bobby loved travel and life. He was an advanced scuba diver, with over 150 dives in Hawaiʻi, Cuba, Fiji, Philippines, and Indonesia. He visited geysers and glaciers in New Zealand, the Louvre and Disney in Paris, tapas and sushi in Seville, an ice skating rink and plays in London. He was most recently a resident of Stockholm, Sweden, and has lived in Seattle, California, Utah, and Michigan.
Bobby was iconic. His infectious laugh and hilarious antics warmed people’s hearts. His hair has been many colors, most recently blue. Ganesh, the Hindu “remover of obstacles” and party animal, was tattooed on his arm.
Memorial services for Bobby will be held when it is safe to travel and congregate, likely in Maui, Detroit and other locations.
We are all sad in Bobby’s passing. Let this memorial help you and others live longer, happier lives. Keep loved ones safe, by respecting travel, social, and shopping restrictions. Reach out to people and tell them you love them. Think about friends who may be lonely in this challenging time, and use video calling and conferencing to bring them closer.
Bobby Pin was and remains our inspiration to live life deeply and lovingly.
