He made us all laugh with his quick intelligent wit. Everyone probably has at least one of his sayings as a cherished memory. To his fans he was an excellent bluegrass musician, although he always thought he needed to do better and practice more. To his friends he was steady, genuine and true. To his family…. he was everything.
