His smile lit up the room every time he walked in. His laughter contagious. I'm so blessed to have known this fine fella. A hoot to party with and partying for rooster was days not evenings. Oh the memories , the good times, I'm jealous of the Angels ...
My heart felt sincerest sympathies for you Ryan & family, this man will forever be missed and is a legend !
