  8. Truly, one of a kind. I’m not normally short on words, as you well know.
    What can I say Brotatochip….. It is what it is, right?
    From Chivin’ to road trips, to walking Fremont and the strip in Vegas…. swimming at the house in Phoenix in the storm trooper suit. Listening to music loud, cooking on the grill constantly, or just hanging out…What a time I’ve had with you.

    Making people smile, was truly your style.

    Since that’s how you introduced yourself; that’s what I’ll address you as. You truly are a one-of-a-kind guy. The MOMENT I met you, I instantly enjoyed being around you. We didn’t hang out much, but, whenever we did see each other, it was most definitely cordial and often times, hilarious. You’re sincerely going to be missed, fella.

  16. This guy, unforgettable ♥️
    Your smile, laugh, and the good times shared will forever be remembered. Rest In Peace old Friend.
