    Booba was a wonderful guy. I have very fond memories of him while growing up and into my adult life. He stood up in mine & Rick Erber’s wedding was a big part of my children’s life early on & even gave my daughter Trista the nick name shredder. I will never forget the Booba wave. I am confident he is with Rick, Dave, Bomber, Kenny, Gab, Jim & his parents in heaven. Love and prayers to the family
