Didnt know him, but through others fond memories I learned he was a kind and gentle man who cherished life, and his place in it. Noone ever spoke anything but admiration for the man. I wish I did have him a part of my life thru friendship and guidance. Whoever was blessed to know him, certainly is the better for it. May God Bless and Keep him and also, may god bless his family here on earth.
73 Sir
