Our thoughts and prayers are with the Family, I worked with Popeye at Tracoustics when it was on E. St. Elmo road. Popeye had a Charismatic personality you could hear him all over the warehouse. We were neighbors for about 3 yrs. on China Grove , and he has a wonderful family!! God Bless!! Andrew & Liz Ybarra
