    My ex father in law. The grandfather of my first born. He was a great man. He held together a wonderful race team. Even though I don’t get along with the family anymore, I hope they are all okay. North Ridgeville lost a great person.

    I was deeply saddened to learn last night of Doug’s passing. What can I say about “Bird?” I met him twelve years ago, actually on the first night of my current job. He started out as a customer, quickly becoming a friend. I don’t know if I’ve ever met a more hardworking, fun-loving, patriotic guy in my life. Always with a funny story on hand, ready to help a friend or a stranger at the drop of hat. True salt of the earth. You’re going to be missed buddy. The whole team at Speedway #3392 wishes to extend their deepest sympathies to his family. Construimus, Batuimus…
