Deep down every one had enormous respect for who he was and what he did for the youth of Sun Prairie. He personally did allot to support me as well. Never have or will forget the encouraging things he said to me on and off the football field. There are many thousands who benefited from his goodness.

I can't believe he was 97 years old - wow!!! He always seemed ageless.

He was a wonderful and fair Principal, and a neighbor of mine. Growing up, I spent alot of time at his house spending time with him and playing with a doll house that he had mad...e for his daughters. He always made time for me, he was a great man.

Kind of an interesting tidbit is that John Sheehan (you probably remember him, but for the rest; John was 2 years ahead of us in school and Mr. Sheehan's son) is the COO at St. Luke's here in Cedar Rapids. The same hospital that my wife Jan works at and she learned that he was from SP when she overheard a remark made by him.... small world. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

I read it on line here in Ohio, he and his family were such a credit to the community.

Thank you, Joy for forwarding on the info. I'm sure that many of us who do not live close to Sun Prairie appreciate you sharing the information. It's amazing how much you don't know about a person who touched so many of our lives. Thanks again, Deb
