What a great and cranky man. Had the pleasure of working with him. In order to get him to go for a pistol shoot a friend and I had to take him and then suck up to the guys to let him have another go on the same day. Cranky as he was we could always break through that veneer and make him laugh. Great investigator with no patience for fools. May he Rest In Peace.
