  16. Miles, Laurie, Harold and family and Robbins folks,

    sad to hear about your dad, brother, and friend. G.A. was a great guy, and growing up in Robbins, He touched many of our lives with his friendship, his humor, he is one of the funniest people i have ever met, and G.A and Harold together, well, no words for that, and yes he did make a mean orangeade, lemonade and milkshake. I remember he always made me smile, laugh and feel good talking with him. The photo you have is great of him, throwing a knuckleball which I’m sure he showed many, many including me how to throw, is priceless. Miles and Laurie, I’m sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you, he will be missed by all he met.

  17. So sorry to hear this. Haven’t seen him in years, but, can always remember him with the most friendliest smile every time I saw him. He made me and a lot of us some of the best orange aids ever. My Parents especially my Dad talked highly of him. Thinking of Miles and Laura at this time. Prayers for all.

  18. So sorry. GA was a person that you could never forget. Happy hunting and fishing GA. You and Anthony save me some to run when I get up there.
