    When I saw the Yellow Jacket's win I thought there had to be something more to it . . . RIP Reck.

    Prayers to family and friends.

    It can't be coincidence that Tech pulled off the win.

    Delma? :grin No wonder he went by Buddy. I wished I knew that earlier, I hate missed opportunities. I could have gotten some mileage out of that.

    Does not mention a wife, and I never saw Buddy discussing one. Anyone know the story?

    I think I read on one of his posts or someone else's that he had kids when playing at GT, and that he lived in the married dorms. So married very young I s'pose.

    He had a couple of wives. One with whom he had the children, then another that didn't last. A lot of what he wrote about Tybee Island involved the second one, I think.

    Sorry to hear of his death. Rest in Peace.

    Me too. I'm also sorry we've started to intrude into areas he didn't feel inclined to share. Knocking it off would be a good move.

    I remember the time Reck and JB got into a conversation about a particular snake...hehehe!

    I would think we are not intruding in areas that he initially shared with his forum family, but that's just me.

    Holy cow. I believe I have seen him play. I think it was the 1966 Orange Bowl against UF when I was a runt. I did not know this, or would have asked him about it. Was the same game Florida running back Larry Smith ran a 90 something yard touchdown from scrimmage and nearly lost his pants before he crossed the goal line. It's a shame I'll never get to ask him.

    I have been out of touch with the internet camping for the last 6 days. Sad news to log on to start the new year. I'm so glad I decided to go to the bash at Rusty's and
    got to meet Reck and Magot and chat with them.
    Reck, you will be missed, RIP Buddy!!:angel

    I do believe Reck's daughter came to town for the Tech home coming game last year.

    My daughter was at the home coming game tonight. Tech 21 Pitt 10.

    Rest easy Buddy.

    I stumbled across this post, realized he was a fellow "Tech Man", and found him in the Georgia Tech digital archives...

    Hope you don't mind me sharing.
