Smile Sorry to hear

Its a terrible loss. He understood the importance of our youth having something wholesome in their lives, and that the car hobby and racing were a great way to keep kids out of trouble, and give the a life long skill in mechanics that could also be used to earn a living. The fact that he went on to own a Ford dealership for 3 decades, showed a true love of cars. We owe it to the nations youth to encourage them when we see an interest in our hobby. Schools today have turned their backs on industrial arts, which I think is the wrong direction. Kids that like to work with their hands get bored with nothing but class room study, and will get into trouble looking for excitement. Encourage youth to get into a regional occupation program, its working for free for school credit, but it might be something they will grow to love.... It would be a good way to remember this man and what he gave and had to offer the world.
