Googs was a great guy. Lots of good times rabbit hunting with him, my dad, John, and anyone else that showed up. For the better part of nearly twenty years, most Sundays or holidays during rabbit season would start down at his place near Millhousen where a group would gather around Googs' pickup truck and spend a good deal of time talking about hunting, sports, sharing stories, and complaining about certain politicians. It was great. Then the group would move on to hunt or go our separate ways to eat or do whatever. But usually by mid-afternoon we'd find ourselves back in the same spot we started at earlier in the day to recap the hunt and pick up the conversation right where it left off. Great times with a genuinely good guy. Going to miss it and him.
