I'm so glad I got to know him a little bit. He was a great guy, and is still sorely missed here.

I thought about Hooch this morning, and the funny greetings he would send to tease me about my insomnia/ early rising. I really miss Hooch on GRF!

I still think of him often and was just thinking of him as I was reading the GRF Rating Poll.

I follow Cindy on Facebook and Hooch would be so proud of Tyler.

You can take this as good or bad but it was Hooch that recommended me to become a Moderator here (when he was already a MOD here) and vouched for me from knowing me from here and past forums. He was a such a trip as he brought such a different, and often funny, view to all the various things around here. I do too miss him and his approach to life.

Funny I thought of Hooch this morning too. It snowed over night, one of my neighbors complains if the sidewalk is not clear because her tiny dog can't walk through snow. As my husband left I reminded him to make sure the walk was clear for the "puntable".

Hooch was quite a guy. Many of us have special thoughts and memories of that ol rascal. I think of the many times he would cut up on the forum and get so many folks laughing. Even if he recommended Rob to be a Moderator. You know I jest...LOL This Forum still reflects his presence at times.

RIP Hooch.
