So sorry to hear this, but so glad he is at peace with God and no longer in pain. I got to know him & Nancy during the MTD events at DQ - we all had so much fun doing the Bikes & Blizzards! He helped with everything we needed - always giving a helping hand - and he even dressed up as a clown to help entertain the kids in attendance :) I missed him this year, but Nancy sent him messages & pictures - I will treasure all these memories & use them to celebrate his life! He was a good soul and I am a better person for having met him. 'Prayers to Nancy and all of his family & friends!
