We (Don Greenlee, Gwen Greenlee and daughter Carol Derscheid took handgun lessons fron Rom two different times and we thought of him as a friend. We saw him a few times later, once at a gun show and once at Odessa Hospital where he was on duty as head of security there, and he always was so friendly and remembered our family. We were so sorry to read of his death and our Condolences to the entire family. Don and Gwen Greenlee
