Grew up with Bub, next door neighbor. Good guy. His wife Michelle was my AAA travel advisor so I got to know both of them later in life. We used to play basketball in Bubs' alley from 8 AM to 8 PM or until we were called to come in. Used to play stick ball also. Bub got the Cushman Motor Scotter, we thought it was so cool. Had great memories shared with the neighborhood. Bub will be missed, my condolences to all the family.
