Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

I patented my game around the game of Leroy Selmon. He played an intricate part in my success as a player in the National Football League. He was the most dominant right defensive end to play in a 3-4 defensive alignment in the 70s and early 80s. I watched hours of film during my tenure which shaped my career as a defensive lineman with the New York Giants while playing opposite Lawrence Taylor.

So very sorry to hear about your loss. I never met him however I met you at Midwest City Hospital where we were both employed as OR scub techs. And so vividly remember you and Lee Roy dating. My prayers that you be comforted as long as need be, because God is a comforter for as long as we need him to be. It's been about 34 years since I saw you and have often wondered how you were doing? Would love to get in touch with you at some point. Take care and know that God makes NO mistakes.

My condolences, I remember him at a benefit for a local football player. My sons were so impressed and he was so impressive, kind and gentle with the kids. They speak of him at times and will be sorry to hear of his passing. Happy Delsigne, formerly Morrison of Coalgate, Ok
