    Sorry to hear of your recent loss. Your dad was a GREAT man! I had a nickname for him since I was small, “Speedy Gonzales”. He used to always ROAR by on the Autowrecker and you knew it was him… Always kind, joking and possessing a “smile”. Please accept my condolences at this time. Take care…Sincerely, Lori Lavigne (nee: Konin)
