His death came much too soon. He was much beloved by his family as well as his friends and fellow darters from the Sacramento Valley Dart Association, as well as other dart organizations throughout Northern California. His smile and sense of humor as well as his generous spirit will be missed by all who knew him, particularly his friends in Bemidji, Minn. and the San Francisco Bay Area. Services will be for family only.
