Great long term friend and buddy! Was always a great person to make sarcastic and entertaining comments about current situations with people around him. Whether the person at hand was standing next to him or not he didn't hold back! Art teacher John at J.M. used to tell us we smelled like "Old tennis shoes" every time we walked into class late, for some reason it happened once and a while.... Hmmmmm? Fun stuff back then!

Great entertainment. Was also a great long term freind to my brother Rob who passed in 2005...

Really liked the guy, glad he spent some of his time on this earth in Breckenridge when he and Fred Ciarletta moved out for 10 years or soo. Met Julie and she definitely completed him! Keeping him in line politely and lighting him up when he needed to be stirred up!

I was really honored to know him! I really have missed him since my last visit to MN before he passed! I my thoughts a lot!

 Go fish and screw around with Rob, drink a Special Ex for me guys! R.I.P. Weebs!
