Wonderful man that cared for those around him – always made me laugh. Countless rides to the hockey rink with Dave and John (Red) - the windows up and the heat on high – Dave would complain about the windows being up (I need air he would say). John’s dad would do most of the driving to the rink (big silver box van) usually ice cold inside that van… Always appreciated the drives to the hockey rink and making us laugh along the way. Thanks for always caring – you will be missed.

I spent many nights playing cards in the office on beach road, not to mention the golf course, Fort Erie, Batavia Downs and the occasional gin mill. All very fond memories. Somewhere up there Bill Thomas is getting under his skin already telling him how he played the hand wrong. Keep two seats warm for the “colored boys.” RIP my friend.
