I just saw this biography notification.
I am sorry to learn of such sadness.
My heart goes out to his famiky. I too remember him as a really nice person. I would have imagined that he was a wonderful husband and father. My husband coached my daughter's team followed the same paths. My heart goes I out to his wife and family.
