  • I've known Pee Wee and his brother Ronnie, since going to school together at Northwest Junior High in Meridian. We stayed in touch over the years and my son James and I visited with him and Ronnie at the cabin on the lake in 2010. They gave us a place to stay and provided comfort and friendship over several days as I made arrangements for my own mother's passing. We fished some and traded stories about the good old days, and you could point to a map and there wasn't anywhere Pee Wee couldn't tell you at least a story about having driven through there in his Big Rig for work, if not more. I'll miss him and he was a true friend; someone I could count on. - Rory Dawkins
