Duck and I enjoyed our mutual view of the joys of cleaning castings, building one´s one pool, and great jokes. His laugh was infectious and his outlook steadfastly positive. A real man´s man-his word was his bond. I especially liked the way he called me `Dad´. Rest In Peace, honorable friend.

Duck was an awesome softball coach to many young girls. Me and my siblings all knew him well and appreciated his time, knowledge and patience as young athletes. He was well-liked and well-respected! What a great man! Thank you for many great memories!
