Our sincere condolences go out to the family. You were a good friend and will truly be missed. I will definitely miss talking to you on the CB radio and I will forget hanging with you and all good times we’ve shared for over 30 years. For now I will sign off with a so long Love Bug. Rest in Heaven. See on the other side, Wagonwheel.

So sorry for your loss. Sending my Thoughts and Prayers to Love Bug’s family. He will truly be missed by all that knew him. Back in the mid to late 80’s he would talk to me on the CB at night when I was going to Perdue in Lewiston to work. He said he just wanted to make sure I made it there okay.
