I got a perverted kick out his infomercials.

Way too young; let’s be careful out there LumberJocks.

I worked in broadcasting for 20 years…wrote, produced and voiced radio and television commercials for small town and big city businesses…it’s a high pressure life…and I’m sad to know he’s gone as well. He was a pro. But when it’s our time to go….we go. Not much we can do to stop it when it’s so sudden like that.

of all the deaths this week, he is definitely the one I’ll miss the most. He really seemed to have a passion for what he did.

I saw several interviews with him and the british guy who co-starred in his show and they both were so different from other pitch men who hawk products solely to make money. They were very adamant about not selling anything that they did not see actually work for themselves. They can definitely be proud for standing up to all the actual crap out there and having some decency about what they sold and how they did it.

I think the Miller High Life Guy could give a 1 second speach at the wake.
It’s sad to se anyone go that young.

I worked with a guy that would come to work in the morning, & by mid afternoon, his beard looked like Billy’s.
He will be missed, his voice would make my head turn, no matter what I was doing.
