No one,absolutley no one that met this man, did not at the least like the heck out of him.  Emil was younger then me, and a few years behind me in school.  We connected and met on the bowling lanes at Paladium Bowl.  There was something about him and his heavy loud voice that made you realize that this was a kind and good man.  No one that ever met him, ever said otherwise.  He was later a customer of mine, and always seemed to find me when I would move.  He will be missed dearly not only by his family but by a lot of people.  RIP, buddy
