Bug was definitely an asst to the community that I and many others will miss. His generation was the same as my late father and mother. At times I wonder if America will last long enough for my generation to die in peace. My deepest sympathies go to family and friends. Gary Huggins

Earlier today I passed by the funeral home. There were about five or six police cars parked in the driveway, so apparently this man was very popular. My condolences to his family.
