I had the very distinct pleasure of knowing this fine gentleman for only about fifteen years. He was a jovial fellow with a great sense of humor and very pleasant demeanor. I first met him when I needed some repairs on an old boat that only I would buy. He did that repair and then came to my house and helped me with another boat I purchased. I later actually worked with Horace at his business. I have nothing but love and admiration for this man whom I will miss all the days of my life on this earth and look forward to seeing him when I go. I will say this only for you Horace, Go Tigers!! Keep them straight up there.
