William ( Billy ) Kresge

Post by planet54 » Wed Apr 17, 2019 1:36 pm

Some of you may remember the story about the guy that hula-hooped on the top of 14ers. That was Billy Kresge. https://www.summitdaily.com/news/sports ... ado-14ers/ Sadly he was killed in an auto accident in Florida recently. https://www.summitdaily.com/news/obitua ... ly-kresge/
I met him a few times and he did some work on the boiler for my house. He was a great guy ,full of life and will be missed. RIP Billy

I've never met him, but it's always sad to hear someone's life cut short by an accident.
