I was a Junior in high school when this tragic accident happened---I was friends with his daughter, and also friends with the siblings of the 2 who died with him. There was not a dry eye in school the day this happened. To this day, the people in our hometown still talk of this incident with deep respect and sorrow. They were 3 very fine loving people. May they rest in peace.
