I remember the time he would spend with his sons and the neighborhood kids playing football. I always thought he looked like Dan Fouts. Lol. He took the time to teach sportsmanship and genuinely liked to interact with us. I am truly saddened by his passing and wish the best to Cheryl, Bobby, Doug and Jeff who I consider my best friends in the time I spent in Portzline.
