Longtime friend. Learned so much from him when I entered the central office 1990. Always willing to help. He was a diehard Washington Redskin and a great skeet shooter. Every Tuesday after we had retired we would meet at McDonalds for breakfast. Such a great guy. I’ll really miss him,,,,,,,good bye my friend.
