So sorry about your father's passing. He was a wonderful roommate for our father Fred at Monroeville. He will be missed.

I have just found out about Wimps passing from a mutual friend/church member.
Wimp was like a second father to me as I went to school with Roger, Larry, Gary and "the crew". All family and other friends have my deep and sincere condolences. He was always an inspiring character and will be missed by so many. RIP Wimp.
