The greatest to ever do it. His tragic passing will forever stand out in my memory—I was actually outside that house that day, waiting for my mother to come back; she'd quickly pulled over and ran up the drive when we passed the assembled news vans and police. I didn't learn for years who that man I'd met briefly a few months prior was; and wouldn't know that they were close for years after that. But this isn't that story. Rest In Peace.
