I can remember Grandpa Shorty from the early 80's when i started dating his Grandaughter Becky.(whom i married). goin down to Goofy Ridge for Christmas, and having a breakfast burrito. alittle bit of some homemade wine. I guess it was then that i decided to find out how he makes wine? i have been making wine every since then. i learned alot over the years goin to Goofy Ridge, i am very proud to have been able to meet Shorty and be apart of his family. i will truly miss him !

I remember Shorty from the Babcock reunions held in Glenn Oak Park.

I REMEMBER "SHORTY" FROM THE MANY TIMES WE HUNTED GEESE WITH MY BROTHER-IN-LAW PAUL GUILLIAMS. "SHORTY" WAS ALSO A GOOD FRIEND AND NEIGHBOR TO MY MOTHER AND FATHER-IN-LAW WHILE THEY WERE ALIVE. MY WIFE AND I WISH TO OFFER OUR CONDOLENCES TO SHORTY'S CHILDREN AND FAMILY THAT REMAIN.
Shorty was our neighbor for the lasat 22 years. He was a good friend and neighbor and will truely be missed. Shorty would always call me into his yard as I was coming home from the mail box and along with Teddy, we would enjoy a glass of his home made wine in the summer. "Sit long, talk much" was what Shorty would always say. Good bye Shorty, GODs speed.
shorty was a very good friend he alays had a smile on his face he will never be forgotten prayers to the family god bless you all
