You have always represented what a true and loyal Elk is and should be; your guidance has been valuable and influenced so many; your work here is done but your work will continue on in the hearts of so many Elks fortunate to have called you friend. RIP.

Had the honor of calling this man a friend. Met about 7 years ago in Dulles Airport on the way to an Elks Convention and the rest was history. Future conventions he will be missed but he will get a toast.
