He was an amazing uncle. It hurst knowing that his daughter, Taylor, didn't know him as well as I got to. Even though I was only 8 years old when he passed away, I still remember how great he was to me. Even when he was teasing me or throwing me over his shoulder to act like he was going to throw me in the pool, I still loved every minute I spent with him.
