He was definitely a fun-loving, beer-drinking redneck.....my kind of guy.

I still remember the tailgate where he got really wasted....he was there with his girlfriend. A discussion about professional wrestling came up and he was going to demonstrate a move on her. He damn near dropped her on her head.


LOL-- he was always having fun... I KNOW i have some pics from some tailgates.. Im going to have to dig them up and post them later on.... Fun dude for sure...

Sucks....

Here are the ones I have.

Cooter is in the black shirt on the bottom with the camo hat on. And Zod said earlier in the thread that Cooter was not Get Some Guy. Cooter was much younger than that guy (I googled him and saw his age listed as 52). I'm betting that Cooter wasn't even 40 yet.....or if he was, he was early 40's.

Here are the ones I have.

Coot dancing is my fave photo!

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.


Yep he was one of the Pantherfanz guys. It was more than a few years ago though. A friend of mine and a poster on this site recently married the widow. Both are great people.

Joker/Pantherfanz was named Marc Stanton. He traveled often to Panther away games and was seen frequently during the 2002 season with the sign "Repeete Victory".

In that fantastic photo after the blocked kick in week 2 of the 03 season, Marc was the lone Panther fan cheering in the midst of a sea of Buc fans in utter disbelief.

Great game! Smitty has been my favorite player every since that kick return.

Wow.. I'm at a loss - completely in shock.. He was always a Spitfire, but one of the first guys to line up to give a hand when you needed one. Back in 2004, when I drove down from RIchmond to Charlotte for one of the first ever Huddle Draft parties, I stayed way too late having too much fun hanging with Coot, Skew, and Mush. Without any hesitation, Coot offered to put me up for the night in his home, so I wouldn't be driving home asleep or forking out any extra cash for a motel. This was with a wife and kids, and only knowing me from this board. Not many folks would do that, nor be so kind as to even offer so quickly.
He was a terrific guy with a ton of heart and a huge personality... so very sad finding this out. I hope he's found the peace he deserved, and knows how much those who knew him will all miss having him around.

if anyone is digging through old pictures and happen to come across one with Cooter and I both in it, I'd be very happy to get my hands on it, please!
