You young ones out there probably won’t, but any of you 50 somethings and beyond will certainly remember him.  In addition to being a tv personality that most kids in this region watched in the 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s, he was also an avid scuba diver and skier, how my parents became friends with him.  My siblings and I watched him every weekend.
