One great guy. We will all miss him at the Y. He was always here in the mornings like clockwork. You could count on him for a smile, for an hour walk on the treadmill, for opening the door for the ladies, and for standing at the coffee maker for conversation. Total shocker! God bless to the family. It was my pleasure meeting you all last night.
