Today, a close family friend, Roger Malott, passed away.. I grew up with the Malott family and Roger was like a 2nd father to my sister and I.
I have a memory of 1999… I was in a mild car accident, but did some damage to the front end of my car… normally I wouldn’t have minded so much, but I had just won tickets, the day before, to see The Verve Pipe in Kalamazoo MI that weekend… so my first thought was “can i drive the car to Kalamazoo?!?!?!?!” my parents were out of town and told me “Take it over to the Malott’s house and have Roger take a look at it.
So I did, and he looked it over and secured the hood and said ‘enjoy the concert.’ He was a very caring, concerend, and great man.. He will be missed.
