My wife Kathy and I, Mel Goldman owned and operated Ace Hardware on 13th & Broadway. Dock was by far the most loyal patrons we had in our store. He made us feel like we were a family member of the Suggs family. He always took time out of his day just to drop in to say Hi!
We express our condolences to Dock's family. We lost not only a great friend but, one of our family as well!
