Yes, he is in the Photo Album with Suronda. His nickname was "Bigote." I lived next door to him and his family in Spelter.

Thanks, Ron. I was afraid of that. I had no idea he was that age! What a deep source of experiences we've lost.

Gracias, Ron. Temí que fuera él. ¡No tenía ni idea de que tuvo esa edad! Qué fuente profundo de experiencias perdimos.
