Most people knew you as Shorty, the man with a streak of silver in his hair and gold in his heart. Laughing and joking with everyone as you made your way around town picking up scratch-off tickets and stopping at your favorite bar for a drink. All while making sure you didn’t miss any of your game shows. We’ll never forget all the amazing times we spent together. From the endless stories to the lifelong advice. Although our hearts are heavy, we know you are now in a better place and are no longer in pain.
