Condolence & Memory Journal

Kevin, Jeff and family I am so very sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of your father and you may or may not remember me but I used to work for your Dad at the Hoosier Motor Club on 10th Street in the early 70's. (In fact I babysit for you 2 boys a couple times). He was my first Boss and a fabulous one at that and my memories are all good. He was referred to by his friends at the time as the "Bald Eagle" and drove that little white Camaro convertible and smoked cigars. He was also my friend and I could talk to him about anything and he genuinely listened, as that is what he did so well ! I am sorry that we did not keep in touch over the years. I can remember also talking to your mother and she was so down to earth. You boys were truly blessed with great parents and when they spoke of you there was nothing but pride in their words. He is in a great place now with our heavenly father and his beloved Pat. I wish that I could attend the services Friday but I am sorry to say that I too have a recent loss of one of my brothers and the times conflict on Friday. Please know that my prayers are with you all and take care.
Debbi (Barr) Walker ..
