I was deeply saddened when I read the news that Doc had recently passed away. I worked with him when I was a driver dispatcher at Penske Logistics at Whirlpool & he was a driver for Mark's company, Circle T Logistics. Doc absolutely loved life, was an AWESOME hard worker who could run circles around the much younger drivers that we worked with. Doc brought much joy to our very chaotic office, because of his pleasant, positive mood & the huge, onry grin on his face. I have have been missing him so much since leaving Penske. BUT now I REALLY miss him & his corny jokes too! TO Mark, Denise & of course to the rest of his family & friends: I send you my deepest sympathies. I will be praying for you, trying to bring you some sort of comfort while you grieve for your loss. God bless you & take care of yourselves. I miss you guys! Respectfully, Kim Townsend Marion, Ohio
