Oh, how sad this is ... I always knew him as "Bunny" and I thought he was just about the coolest guy who ever lived when he played basketball at Weogufka High School. He was in the 10th grade and I was in the 2nd grade and he would pick me up and carry me around on his shoulders. Through all of these years, he was always my hero in that purple and gold basketball uniform.
