My deepest sympathy to the family. He was such a good person who I had the joy of riding the school bus for several yrs with & attending classes with at Pine Valley. My husband Jim was a good friend also & he passed away at age 70 from lung cancer. Hope you have many wonderful memories of fun times together & you certainly can be proud of this man.
