Timmy and your entire family. What great memories I have of your dad, the coach...and the man. Always with that smile. And what fun it was play for him. And I know my brother, Ken, also so enjoyed having coached alongside your dad in both Boardman Youth Baseball and Boardman Little League. I look back so fondly on those memories and I pray for peace for your families.
