I was 12 years old when you lost your life. I was on the playground of Immaculate Conception grade school and heard the gunfire about 1/2 block away. This happened right by the Klotz residence. You walked myself and my sister Phyllis home after the movies at Hollywood Theater. I have never forgotten how kind and caring you were. Such a nice man and gone way too soon. Rest In Peace.
