What a shock to find this on a google search. His whole family have been a delight in my life over the years. From th eUniversity of Idaho to Wilber and Coule Dam, to the home of Ron and Tressie, to seeing Judy for the first time in Seattle when we were in college - wow. Thoughts and prayers to Susie.
