A mutual high school friend told me the very sad news Of Todd’s passing. I’m so sorry. Todd, and I were friends in high school. I never called him “Todd” by his request. He was George to me. In high school we learned how to play ice hockey together. Practically every day after school I’d go over to his house and we’d play some street hockey which amounted to George donning makeshift goalie pads consisting of a piece of carpet over foam tied to his legs with ropes, a baseball glove, a hockey glove and an old time hockey mask. He’d stand in front of a goal net we made from 2x4’s and chicken wire. Since his house was at the end of the street at that time we could play for hours and not worry about traffic. We were on the same High School Hockey team. The first year the team was established. The house that George lived in also backed up to a corn field. It was in that corn field we launched our model rockets. We’d put bugs in the rockets to see if they’d survive the trip. Sometime the parachutes wouldn’t open and needless to say bugs didn’t survive. One rocket George built was a version of the Gemini rocket. It required 2 rocket engines. He was very proud of that rocket. It was a big deal to launch that rocket because we never launched one with 2 engines before. He built a launch pad for it and we drug it out to the corn field for the inaugural launch. Unfortunately that was the first and only launch of that rocket as we never could find where it landed. There was a popular song at that time called “Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep”. We put our words to that song after we lost is Gemini model rocket: Where’s your rocket gone Little Toddy boy It’s been gone so long Little Toddy boy Last time I saw my rocket I was singing a song…. George was responsible for getting me a job at Brooks Armored Car company. It was a great summer job. I worked with George at the company boxing coin and eventually I made it onto the trucks. Thanks to him. When I think back on those years I cannot remember a time when I saw him mad or upset. He was always so happy. Had a great sense of humor. He’d laugh at my sophomoric jokes and we would cut up and tease as typical teenagers. We lost touch after I graduated high school and went away to college. George went into the service a year later and that was about it as our lives diverged. George was a big part of my youth. I’ll never forget him or the memories of the times we had together. George, thank you for being my friend oh those many years ago.
