My Buddy Toohey
I always looked UP to Toohey as you would a older brother.
He was a wonderful guy. Big, strong and very fair.
He had a high pitched voice that seemed strange for his build.
When there was a contest he was usually the 1st one across the line.
Toohey and Lt Lay got along very well. Toohey and Chalmers were very close.
After 60 years I wish I could add more. Too bad we didn't do this 50 years ago.
