I am deeply sorry to hear about Lairold's passing. He was a childhood friend and his parents and my parents migrated from the same area in south.
In High School, Lairold and I competed for the same spot on the wrestling team. I was never able to beat him for two (2) years and had to wait until he moved up to a different weight class. We both played drums for Garfield High School's marching band and competed at our high school talent shows. We also briefly shared an apartment during his time at Case Western University. He was a great friend and I could always count on him for warm advice and laughs.
I will always remember the great times we had square dancing at Lairold and Kathy's wedding. There are so many great memories throughout my life with Lairold, Kathy and the kids. He was a great friend and will always be remembered. To Kathy and the kids, may God bless and comfort you now and in the days ahead.
