What a fantastic guy, I am so sorry to hear this! He spoke with us while we ran the Lambs Mill Inn in Naples, Florida, during the numerous days that a microburst knocked out electricity and caused a lot of damage to establishments that dealt with food and refrigeration. Rest In Peace, dude. I love you!
