Sincere sympathy for Spud's family whom he loved dearly. Spud's warmth, kindness and sweet spirit will always be remembered. He was always a gentleman. I only knew him in the last 20 years and enjoyed hearing his innumerable stories of his personal adventures, and I believe every one! He was also proud of his heritage and readily shared his remembrances. May God rest his soul.
