Sorry for your loss
I am so sorry for your loss. I lived across the field from your dad when we were teenagers. My brother Ralph Doerzbacher and I were friends with him. My sister Dawn and I were both in marching band with him and remember him playing the base standing on his head. My father Ralph Doerzbacher still lives on Kiser Lake rd and had gone to see him while he was ill and was sad when your dad went back to OSU. We are so sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you.
