Our Hearts and Prayers are with Dink's Dear Family. I truly remember playing fast pitch softball with or against Chuck and Dink. And, yes, they were AN AWESOME duo. If you got on base you were lucky. God Bless You All

I was so sorry to hear this. Such a unique and likeable man. RIP

Dink worked with Donnie on the RR for years and even after Donnie passed away he always had time to talk to us. Bryan especially enjoyed talking to Dink about the railroad. We're both very sorry for your loss and know that he will be missed.

Growing up in Malvern, Dink was someone who I looked up to and respected for his athletic ability. Humble, friendly, and easy-going, but could be someone who you better be on your "A" game when he stepped on the field. My sincere condolences to his family.

Bob has been a customer of ours for as long as I can remember. And in all that time every visit was a positive experience. He was one of my dad's favorite customers and mine as well. He will be missed.
