Editor's Note: I had the pleasure of briefly meeting this gentleman. I wasn't really aware of who he was, only that my crew/employees knew him by name. He came into the store I was the Manager of in Pittsburgh. I recognized him immediately when I watched this video as soon as it was released. I had, in my employee, at different times, CMU students. I called them, "my gifted crew," as only gifted and highly intelligent applicants get into CMU. I only spoke to this fella for a minute but I can look back in retrospect that he was a person who exuded, a positive force. A great example of a man, may he rest in peace but live long in the memory of man.
