  5. So sorry to hear about Mr. Theoples. I was his UPS driver for the last few years and every time i had a deliver for him he always welcomed me with open arms and filled my ears with great stories. I only knew him for a short amount of time but i could tell he was a one of a kind individual and will truly be missed. My condolences to the family.
