Bones was 1970 graduate of Sewickley High School. He was a local landscaper. You can hear his laughter, see him playing pool, his humor stirring the pot, and his presence at the annual family clay pigeon shoot with his family and friends. We will always hold him in our hearts and minds with a smile.
