I was a member of the football team and lived in the dorm with I.W. I have many great memories of him. He had a very kind heart. He visited my home in Oklahoma City and if I remember correctly, we met his grandparents in Borger while attending the Borger relays with several teammates. I was so sorry to hear of his passing.
Eternal rest Grant to him, O Lord; and let Perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and The Souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
