You always knew when Jr was around because you could hear him whistling before you saw him. He loved to watch “Wheel of Fortune” even though he was not solving any of the puzzles, he was always early everywhere he went, even sometimes being there an hour early just so he knew he wouldn’t he late. Jr loved his children and even now he would always tell them to get home before dark and if you came to his home he wouldn’t tell you to come in, he would say, “wipe your feet”.
