I want to pass on my sincere condolences. I remember Pudge fondly. He was a life-long friend to my father, Larry Vollmer. We had many happy times at all of the Pastime events and other "gang" get togethers. He always had a cheerful smile and he was a good friend to my family. Let's hope Pudge can get together with his Pastime buddies for some bowling and laughs in heaven.
