I just wanted to say as a basketball coach you never really know what you are signing up for. You were a father figure to some of us. At a pivotal time in our life you jumped into action with no hesitation. Now that I'm a head coach I appreciate you more. Your time away from family and your dedication to the girls and the game was nothing but love. Rest Easy ~ Erica aka Brownie

Greatest mentor and person Ive ever known. If You ever needed something he was always there. Whether it be for a guidance or a quick pick me up. He loved what he did on and off the court and he showed it. He coached me for basketball at Keyport, and kept in touch throughout the years. He will truly be missed. He was an outstanding person .
