Thanks Mif for your post. I did not know or meet the gentleman personally, but I had heard of his contributions to the RHA and the American Rose Society. His contributions have truly added to the betterment of our hobby. On behalf of the Rose Hybridizers Association, I offer our most sincere condolences to his family.
