I met Mr. Brazzle many years ago when I was a high school athlete in town. Growing up as a paper boy delivering the Tucson Citizen and being a sports fan, I knew of him and enjoyed reading his columns. When I met him I was impressed. He seemed to be such a genuine and straight forward person. Later in the season, after we lost in the state playoffs, I looked up in the stands and saw him. I sat down and visited with him and he helped me, a seventeen year old high school student, find perspective in what seemed like such a crushing loss. He didn't have to say anything, but he did. And I am a better man for it. I remember him fondly and am very sorry for his family's loss.
