"I'm very sad to learn of my old friend passing. In our hot rod days , he had a Nova that would really dance. After high school , we rode to work in Upland together for a while. (we found a monkey one time- Steve threw that big class jacket over it, I kept it as a pet) . I was sure happy when he let come out of the hay mow to stack the wagon, then swimming in a pond after a day in the field . Condolences to his family, Bill Nickey"
