What a great man. So many memories, and they are all good ones:) Watching him and Richard build the motorcycle in the basement, playing pool, football games, poker, the list goes on and on. I’ll never forget him staying up late with me, after everyone else went to bed, to talk with me after my fathers passing. Straight shooter, tell it like it is, and THE LOOK;) I hope he and my father are toasting beers in heaven right now. I hope they are looking down on what great families they raised. cared for, and are very proud. I will always have a special place in my heart for Rick and the Colville’s. They are my second family and I love them all. May your soul be at piece my friend. Forever loved, Never Forgotten.
