Not sure what to say?

It was a thrill to watch Tree and his mates play at the Jaffa Mosque. It was honor and a privilege to meet him and a few of his mates, Joe Aston and Fr. O'Malley at St. Francis where they honored the basketball greats.

All three of them were drat picks with O'Malley to the Pistons, Joe to the Pittsburgh team That team stands out as a personal favorite.

Tree was bigger than life and obviuosly touched a lot of lives. Rest in Peace . Jim Kilcoyne Class of 1971 SFU

Tree was one of a kind..

Moving on to another special place during Teacher's Appreciation's Week, Mr.Trosch continues to share his beliefs with others through technology. It is awesome to read about the thoughtful memories from his students, other teachers and friends. The Bacik family shared many of them, also. Prayers are sent your way.

I grew up in Altoona and enjoyed watching Tree and the Frankies at the Jaffa Mosque. He was quite the ball player. My sympathies to the family. May he rest in peace.
