My best memory of Hans (i always called him Dad) was several years back at a party at Steves. Me n him n Steve had a few drinks during the day and were playing horseshoes. While he n I threw horseshoes Steve was shooting at them from the porch. As i walked to the other end i looked back he had fell flatt on his face and was laughing and couldnt get up! He was a great mechanic and hard worker but most of all my friend. Bill
