So sorry for Chris and Todd's loss. Some of my great memories as a kid was ridding my bike down to hang out with Chris. Playing Basketball in the drive way listening to Rock and Roll AC/DC and the Cars on Todd's turntable. LOLOL Memories with all the neighborhood kids. Craig S, Jeff S, Billy "Hoe", Terry "Beek" and whoever else was around. I remember the Mt. Dew drinks, Tacos Dinners, cutting wood and all that crazy stuff. Rest in Piece Cork.

So many fun memories of playing cards with Cork and Sherry, weekly for a long time. I smile thinking of how mad Cork would get sometimes when the cards didn’t go his way. We all just waited for the blow up to blow away. Sometimes Cork made his delicious tacos. Loved them., We went camping with them once. It was so much fun. I’m sure we planned to go again but never did.
Cork was a good guy with a great quiet laugh and a great smile.
Maybe I shouldn’t say this here, but one memory was that Jim and Cork enjoyed irritating Sherry and me by seeing who could make the most noise passing gas! They were like bad little boys when they got together.
Every memory of Cork is good and I’m so sorry for your loss, family. May he Rest In Peace.
