I'll always remember:
Coach Larry Bates.  I am sad to report that shortly after I retired Larry passed away from complications of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. 
 
He was a great guy and the person I credit most with positively influencing my life. He and I talked to one another regularly over the past several years, and I had the good fortune to visit him in a rehabilitation center the morning of the day of my retirement reception. Nothing could have been more fitting, for, without him, I would not have made it to that point in my life.  I owed him everything.
