I'm sorry to hear about Virgil's passing. He and I worked together back in the seventies for my dad, Tom Jessup, at Jessup Construction Company. I always was amazed at Virgil's ability to fix anything with a motor! It didn't mater if it was a car, truck, front end loader or bobcat. He was a smart guy! He was so thoughtful toward me and I learned a lot from him.
