Is Obama's Father Alive?

Is Obama's father still alive? I haven't seen him on the campaign trail?
It would be interesting to hear from Barack Obama's parents.

What is the name of Obama's father, is he alive and where is he right now?

Barack Obama's father died in Kenya - he left Obama when he was 10 years old and he never saw him again.
His dad left him the first time when he was 4 - went back to Kenya and had tons of kids and several wives. Then came back when he was 10, and left him again.

Obama's father, a Harvard educated economist named Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. passed away in a car accident in 1982.

His mother Shirley Ann Dunham passed away in 1995 of ovarian cancer.

His stepfather Lolo Soetoro an Indonesian oil manager passed away in 1987.

I think it's so sad both Obama's parents are dead.

This is a picture of Barack Obama with his mother.

Apparently, the senior Barack Obama charming, intelligent, well-liked, and reasonably well-connected in Kenya, but he was also a womanizer, an indifferent father, a man of many gifts and advantages that he rarely used for anyone's advantage but his own. Barack Obama's father had such a serious drinking problem that it caused him to lose his job, be divorced by Ruth for his abusive behavior, lose his legs in a car crash while returning home drunk, and finally losing his life in a similar crash.
