    I first met Cowboy about twenty-five years ago. He made us feel as if we were all in on the same joke. Although it's been awhile since I've seen him, I smile whenever he crosses my mind. Gonna miss you, Cowboy. Farewell, my friend.

    Cowboy was a friend to all. Always smiling and willing to chat. He left a permanent impression on the lives of many people. He will be greatly missed and never forgotten!

    You made a smile come easy Cowboy. T-Town and, especially Egans, were more fun when you were there. Namaste!

    Cowboy was a legend, and I loved talking to him at Egan's back in the day. Sad that he is gone.
