In 2002, Columbus City Council issued a resolution that recognized him for his untiring service to Dinglewood Pharmacy and the Columbus community.

Their was only one Lieutenant in the whole world. Visiting with him at the counter at Dinglewood was like being with a family member in their kitchen. He knew a lot about us and always seemed interested. He has been missed, but even more now that we know we will never see him again at his place at the chili pot.
