    Didn't he suffer a stroke or something a few years ago?

    No, I'm thinking of Saunders. I could just be wrong. I thought that's why he slurred his speech. Maybe it was something other than a stroke, though.
  11. A lot of the write up has ties to cancer research and Jimmy V stuff ... Did he have cancer?

    He was a pro. R.I.P.
