    Huffy you have no idea how much you meant to our whole family. You endured more than almost everyone I know and yet never complained. I truly admired you for everything you went through day after day. We will always miss you and will see you again someday. I’m so glad you’re pain free now. We shared birthdays one day apart and I’ll always remember yours is the day after mine.
    We will miss you.
    Vicki Broshears Pinnell & Mark Pinnell

He worked on the pit crew of The Red Barron Blown Fuel Hydro Boat and was especially proud of his work on the Black Hawk Helicopter.
