I posted this in scrappin first...which I don't ever post on (sorry!)

I don't know why I am posting it here. I am just so sad. He was the best boss ever. It was just the two of us in the Athletic Office. I am so sad.

Please pray for his wife and 3 daughters.

He was truly the best boss I ever had. I am going to miss him so much. It was just the two of us in the office. I am dreading tomorrow....

I am so sorry to hear. I have a couple of students that I tutor that are very involved in sports that go to that school. Just from reading the article it sounded like he was a great director and supported everyone. Big hugs to you, the rest of the staff, and student body during this time.

Thanks for all the support!!!!

I think it was weather related. He disappeared between Friday night and Saturday morning. There was snow in Northern Illinois that night, so everyone is guessing weather or a deer, which are very common around here (I just was stopped early tonight by two deer getting chased by a coyote running across the local road here).
