I knew Lavon from the Apprenticeship school. Him and I always talked about running. I can remember seeing him on Thanksgiving Day morning before a Half Marathon with his daughter, i remember how happy they both were there and how much of a coincidence it was to see them out of 10,000 people. Im sure other memories of Lavon will make people smile for years to come. We will miss you brother!
