"I am sad to announce he passed away July 15. I was able to be with him at the end. It is heart warming to read about him in your group! I was always his shadow, following him in the beginning when he was first getting started. Many times I was sent into the water to retrieve a boat. I loved hearing he was an integral part of this! I found your site because when I came to his house, all his subs were gone. I was happy to find your site and discover his boats have all found good homes. It was such a relief!"
