    I knew Chaya, as I’m also a Houston-based musician. So sad to learn of his premature departure.

    Very sad to read.

    I corresponded extensively with him to help him make his (perfect) emission sticker reproductions.

    Very sad. A nice guy.

    I'm sorry to read this. I hope you've found rest, Chaya.

    His obit.... troubles me. But I'll respect privacy and not ask for specifics. Except to say - I've never personally met any of you; but if you ever feel a need to talk about life and share/relieve some inner pressures - send me a PM.

    Wow...perhaps I would have seen this sooner in the Texas Section...…..what a loss.

    He was a great talent, he invited the WHOLE FCA Houston group to celebrate his birthday, I guess four years ago, now??
    Great musician and the Oriental Restaurant went all out to feed us, and the full jazz band was great...

    And he was so proud, of "rattle canning" his wheels!!

    He was fighting with his gf that night, the only off note, to the whole evening.
    Rest in Peace, Chaya Tinterow.

    Thanks thorn, that's a very kind offer.
    The ego wills itself to survive, until some pain becomes too great, to bear.

    Worked with Chaya to perfect the emissions decal for the late 1988 328, and he was a prince of a fellow, to say the least. We've lost a terrific Ferrarista, and a wonderful guy.
    Praying you've found peace, my friend...
