I was so saddened when I learned of Fergie’s passing. He & I were softball teammates back in the 1970’s & 80’s and remained good friends until the time of his passing. He and his wife Diane were always two of my favorite people and enjoyed great friendship with both through the years. He was just one of those special people you meet in life that you just couldn’t help but love. He will be missed dearly by all of us.
