RIP Cooter...

It'll be somewhere around that one in the vicinity. Wherever DJ Jimmy goes, I tag along because he saves guaranteed spots for us every week, and it will be a lot that has few rules and EARLY opening times.

I knew the quieter side of Cooter. I remember sitting out in his back hard drinking a few while discussing marriage, raising boys, etc. He had his personal demons just like all of us do. There is no doubt in my mind that Sport had a good and loving heart. If there is a just god and a heaven, he is surely there now waiting on us to crack another one open.

Damn you stirring up a sand storm in my apartment. I hate how my eyes get watery when sand gets in them.

I remember the time Ranucci did the whole hog and he walked behind it and pretended to bang it.

I can also remember when we used to have kegs and he was always willing to help a girl up for a keg stand.

he's got his "Ron Mexico" hat in that picture. I believe I still have mine.

I still have mine! Well I did until 6 weeks ago but think it's still in my stuff at my house in Charlotte. I actually wore it doing yardening and then thought it may not be the most PC thing to do but it served purpose when most of my stuff to move was being packed.

Those were fun times.

I'm still in shock over this. Cooter was a great guy. Very fun loving and friendly. He would make sure you were having a good time at the tailgates. He was the type of guy who just hit it off with everyone.

RIP my friend.

I'm praying and my whole church is praying for the friends and loved ones you left behind. Specially your boys.

Can anyone say if it was an illness or not? I just find it troubling to know how appreciated he was by so many here, had young children who are now without a dad, and was still so young.

I'll repeat this again (said it in an earlier post) but he had spent the whole weekend with his kids and hung out with family Sunday nite. Went back to his house late Sunday and pretty much went to bed. His gf found him unresponsive Monday morning when she woke up.

You just never know I guess when its your time. Seems like I remember a prominent tailgater who was loved and well known who tailgated on the backside of the stadium who died suddenly at 41 or so just a few years ago.
