He came to Florida five years ago and stayed with me and my husband. I hadn’t seen him in probably 40 years and it wasn’t like we never missed a beat. We talked about grade school, middle school, high school and he remembered all these people that I had totally forgot about but he remembered their names and had great stories of everybody. We got in a round of golf and had lots of laughs. He will truly be missed this larger than life lovable man.

Joyce, Bradley, Colleen, Kendall- we have the fondest memories of your time as our next door neighbors!! Your dad stopped in at our new home in Pensacola a few years back and it was like no time had gone by. Dan just spoke to him recently trying to coordinate a visit when he was on a lay over in WI.
