My Uncle helped shaped me as a person. He stayed with my family for several years during my middle and high school years and gave me almost a third parent to look up from and learn from. I loved playing cards, watching sporting events and "chasing sirens" all over Clinton with Dick. I'm so thankful I hace always been close with his kids (Chris and Courtney). Uncle.... you'll be missed tremendously! Go hawks!
