So many great pics of Coot!! because he was always smiling and laughing and looking like he was having the time of his life. When Joe and I first joined UMV he and Margie were so friendly and welcoming to us. He did so much for UMV, was always willing to represent at events, manning the table, and boy did he spend hours washing pots in the kitchen after the Harley Raffle. I will never forget his friendly hugs and hear his voice saying "hey there Sweetie, how ya doin?" Margie, we know no one will miss him more than you but please know we loved and respected him and he is an unforgettable person.
