Does anyone remember DU's oneeighty?

We liked each other's writing, exchanged letters and even books, but I never asked him why
the chose "oneeighty" for his screen name.

He died several years ago.

Does anyone remember him and know why he chose "oneeighty" as his screen name?

1. Volleyball

Did I ever tell you my nickname in the Navy

for a couple-a years was 180? It was because

whenever I managed to hit the volleyball it

would sail off 180 degrees opposite of my

intentions.

180

4. I don't know the poster but it reminds me that I miss MrJim

 

maybe he lived off of or near I-80 and put together it looks like 180

I hate when someone on a board like this dies, and we all really do not know the person whatsoever, nor have any way to tell their friends/families that they were special.

MrJim was a person I truly liked on another board (CGCS) who died way too young from cancer and had a family and young kids.

No names, no contacts.

5. I was thinking of him (and Eggbeater) just the other day.

What wonderful stories they used to tell. They, and many others, are missed.

6. Ed Gard.

What a nice and interesting man. He was a fellow emphysema patient and was very helpful to others, me included. He used to give other veterans rides to the VA for treatment. What a sweet guy.
