Saddened to learn of Rabbit’s passing. I’ll never forget the stories he would share with us in Don Lanier’s woodworking class @ ECCHS. My late mother thought the world of Rabbit, Randy, Mildred & Rhoda. Audrey, your dad’s stories were definitely one of my few fond memories of high school. Thoughts & prayers to you, your mom & the rest of the family.
