I can echo the same great thoughts and comments that Dave Courtney stated so well. Owen was a great high school friend as we grew up in Telluride. I shared many of those same memories with Edo when I learned of Owen's passing. Even though we all have gone different ways through out our lives, we have stayed in touch.
My condolences to Edo and Tommie and all of the family.
Many Great High School memories with Owen.

Owen was my best friend in high school. We shared being captain and co-captains on the football and basketball teams. He played right half-back and right linebacker on football and I played left half-back and left linebacker. On basketball, he played left forward and I played right forward. We could not have been more close.. We joined the Army together under the buddy plan on August the 13th, 1959 (Micky Moen also joined with us) We played many a game of pool at Padilla"s and worked many nights on his chevy at Bailey's garage.. Owen's mother "Peanuts" feed me many a meal and washed my athletic uniforms. She also took care of me when I was sick. Edo will remember many of these memories.. I just heard this news today (22nd) from my brother Dennis Reece and I am still in a state of shock. I will miss him dearly. I think my thoughts will be shared by Ron Carriere, Jack O'Rourke, Dick Stevens, David Pilcher and Pete O'Berto, just to name a few of the Telluride crew still alive who knew and loved Owen. To Edo and Tommie, I cannot express my current state of grief.
