Very sorry for your loss. I remember when his family lived in the 2-story house just east of the Shawneetown High School. My dad was his science teacher.

Thinking of the family with deepest sympathy. He was my 1st cousin and I can remember he and Dean were good friends with my brother, Clinton Rash. May he rest in peace.
