He joined the NOPD after graduating from Tulane University, where he played football on a scholarship and rose to the ranks of team co-captain. He was also a three-sport athlete at De La Salle High School in New Orleans, graduating in 1972, and was inducted into the school's hall of fame in December.

Hey GB, isn’t it a little creepy that we see obituaries for folks aged within a couple of years of us these days? Nothing is promised.

the thought did cross my mind :wink:

what I'm starting to run into more and more is people who I've known and worked with for years in my field..........retiring. Seems like just yesterday we were the new guys just getting started.

admittedly I check the obituaries every morning; first, to see if there are any of my patients there (rheumatologists have lots of older patients, since arthritic diseases are far more common as one gets older). Then I check to see if I'm in it...
