I had the pleasure of being around DC while working at the Gold King. He was a great man who spread nothing but kindness to me and anyone he encountered. Sorry for your loss.

Uncle DC was one of my very favorite Uncles. I hate that I haven't had the pleasure of visiting as often as when we were kids.
He always made us laugh.

Uncle DC was so funny. I remember watching his gold King commercial on YouTube. I laughed so hard, my laughed and my brother laughed. I remember the cars he used to redo and how beautiful they were. I remember him im in the hospital when he had pneumonia. The room was full my cousins and their children. He left a wonderful legacy. I can see him my daddy and my brother Charles open heaven talking about racing and just cutting up.
