May 17, 2020

Marcellus "Judy" worked with me at Sears for many years while I was the Auto Center manager. I thought very highly of him. He was a good man and a great fellow employee. He was a valuable member of a great Sears Automotive Team!
My sympathy and best wishes to the family during this difficult time.
