I will truly miss Mr. Shannon ,or Pop, as I always called him. Today when his Son,David ,pulled up to my car lot to tell me Pop had passed he didn’t have to say hardly nothing. I had a feeling when I saw David pull up. I know the wife and entire family will miss Pop but especially the close relationship Pop had with his Son, David. After David retired from the railroad he spent lots of time with his Dad. It was a relationship I can relate to with my Late Dad. Mr Shannon was always very nice and just a solid guy. He was from the Old school and America’s greatest generation. So from one Airman to another I will miss you Sir but I know you are with the Lord for Eternity.
