Otis was a great guy. I met Otis years ago at a boat shop in Covina CA. He was a very friendly guy even to a young kid who asked a lot of questions. Later when I met Rick & put 2 n 2 together I would see Otis all over the place & he was always laughing at something I did or just giving me a hard time for something I hadn't done. Otis may have left us today, but he will always be with us in spirit. R.I.P Otis, and i'm glad your no longer in any pain.
Prayers to all of his family & many many friends. And to my good buddy Rick. I know how it feels to lose your best friend. He loved you & Mary, and he was very proud of what you had accomplished in your career. He'll be right along side you when you take the hot rod out on her maiden voyage)THumbsUp....Godspeed
I love the story of Otis telling Rick on how to take the corner at the K Boat shoot out at Irvine Lake a few years back. It was that information that led Rick to win the event... Then Rick was taught by his dad at a very early age racing midgets on how to hoist the trophy way over his head in victory lane.... I didn't get to spend much time around Otis but it was enough to realize what a hell of a man he was....
