  1. News of your passing spread like wildfire through the pipeline and surrounding construction communities. And every one of us felt the shock of unexpected loss. The battle with denial and all too brief hope that what we had heard was somehow twisted and wrong. The loss of your commitment and knowledge of trade pales only in comparison to the loss of fierce and devoted friendship. Your wit, your humor, and your laughter will be missed along with the way you lived everyday to the fullest. This life will surely be a duller place now that your light has gone out. Thoughts, prayers, and strength go out to your family and we are so thankful that they shared you with us. Much love and peace to all of you.


  2. Brotha it was an honor to not only work with you…but to know you. A good person who cared deeply for your friends and family the world is darker without you being here….god speed brotha…see ya on the other side.
