I am so sorry for your loss.  He was such a great mentor to me as a young SPC newly hired as a UA.  I remember being in class with him and 1SG Nunemaker at the RTI shortly after I got hired.  Lots of good natured teasing and always sound advice whenever I reached out to them after class was over.  What a difference he made in the lives of many soldiers!
