Gumba, we will always remember the times we had at camp and down the river. Remember, sun rise, sun set, river flow , moon glow and of course your famous saying of all "911". We will miss you and one day we will see you. Keep the hooch safe.

I have not seen Gumba for a long time, neither his sister Donna Kichda and her family. Ken and I had some great adventures when we were young, he was my friend! after moving from the S.S. we didn't see one another at all. When my wife called me at home this morning and told me that he died, a well of emotions rolled down my spin,like the time he fell off the pier down the river,or when we put 2 gal.of jack in two milk jugs so we could get into the Legend Valley Concert with them,also all the great nut punches he made for us. Most of all though, was the day he stood with me when i was married! I know i'm late with this so forgive me my brother, I LOVE YOU!
