I went to St Mary"s with David K thru 7th grade. David, Jack Gorges, & I were friends. I had 4 retina surgeries & a cataract eye surgery in April of 65. So I missed too much school to go to ACHS til 66. But I still remember those good old days at St Mary's. May God give David one of His mansions and Grant Him Eternal Life. Peace to all the Zacharski Family.

This one hit me hard as I distinctly remember Spoof & Herm showing up at the shop on a Friday evening to drink a few beers and solve all the world’s problems. Spoof, you will be missed!!

Spoof was one of the funniest people I have ever known. I was part of the group that spent a lot of time together a very, very long time ago. He gave me the nickname Tones and I had some of the greatest times of my life with that group. I am devastated by this news and my thoughts and prayers go out to Lisa and the family.

Condolences to Spoofs family. I agree with comments posted above regretting not staying in contact. However, life gets in the way and one is lulled into complacency that “tomorrow” will always be there.

My deepest sympathies to Spoof's family. I dated Spoof our Junior year. He was a gentle, kind and loving boyfriend. My regret is that we did not keep in touch. May you find peace and comfort knowing he is no longer in pain but in the arms of our loving Father.
