We played pool league against each other.
We did a few deals on a pool cue and a case.
He was always a good guy to play and deal with.
Taken too soon.
RIP my friend.

I only got to meet you and be around you 2 times, once over dinner and once at your cabin in Pine, Deb found a genuine sweet man in you, you were just so kind with me and Russ as if you had known us forever.

When I first heard, I was devastated and still am. I will always remember your sweet smile, kindness and big heart that I got to see and got to know in those visits.

R.I.P. kind soul.
