1985 & 86.....I fondly remember being paddled by the “good dude” on a daily basis. Yes, I deserved it.
I also remember sharing a lot of laughs and good times out in that wood shop as well as learning some valuable life lessons.
Rest well old friend and thank you for all that you did. You’ll be missed.
