  1. Bear I think back on a lot of good times together during our coaching days. Those days were a lot of hard work but you always seemed to help keep things on the lighter side making the had work bearable and almost fun. I will miss the good days of Coaching School and the fun we had there.

  2. You will always be remembered as a great man, teacher and coach. You and Mrs B are wonderful people that made learning fun and genuinely cared about all of us. I will cherish the short time I was able to spend with you both to be taught and mentored at NHS! I always thought you all were the coolest & cutest couple! My thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences to the entire family. Fly High Coach ….Rest Easy! ❤️
