Deb and Family. So sorry to hear of Spud's sudden passing. Spud was a great guy and will be missed by all. I had a great time working with Spud at Heat Tech, and he never failed to make my day with a joke orcomical observation and asmile,especially on the"things aren't going so good days". I always called him "Spud Man the Bud Man",and his nickname for me was Pappy. Of course we had nicknames for everybody back then! He was a very talented individual and could fix anything. Deb, may the good Lord comfort and care for you and allSpud's familyin the days ahead. Bruce and Michelle Jones, Afton
