I never did get a chance to meet with him in person, but I had spoken with him on the phone enough to know that he was definitely a great asset to our group. He was hoping to go to WCBF in both 2005 and 2006 and work ended up getting in the way both times. I know he would have fit right in with the rest of us in Albany.
My thoughts go out to his family and friends. :(
I tried to find out more details on exactly what happened, but so far I can't find any media accounts of the events that occured.
