I imagine that probably 99% of these gentlemen have passed away by this time, but they all had some impact on my life before I moved away in 1994. Thanks guys for all of the memories and the positive influence that you made on a young man who lived in Center Township in the Village of Carrollton, Ohio. I will always remember the time spent in my hometown.
