It was such an honor to be part, as an appointed official, of his administration of the new Consolidated and to support him for Governor. His presence and his decision making made him the right man at the right time. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. In later years, I always enjoyed visiting with him. He was a man of his time, which I think is a compliment he would appreciate. Rest in Peace, Mayor

My thoughts and prayers are with you and Debbie and your entire family. It has been a long time since I've seen you but I felt the need to reach out because your dad was a great man for our town and the thought of him brings back many memories of much earlier, happy times. Take care and find peace in the knowledge of what a wonderful person your father was.
