He was my advanced partner. He went thru the lessons with me and then we danced advanced at least once a week until his death. I still miss him. He worked in the aerospace program before he retired. He loved square dancing and he danced 3 to 4 nights per week. He loved naked square dancing: his peel-off dangles were over a foot long.
