Mr. Gleason was one of my baseball coaches when I played in the Liberty Rd. little league. I remember his smile and quiet demeanor. Occasionally, he would play cards with my dad and my neighbors .

My dad was loved by many and like by all. He dearly loved his children and grandchildren. He also loved his two longtime canine friends, Gaylord and Troubles.
