Send us your Twister stories and sign up for notification email when his book of stories is ready to order.

Twister's stories brought joy to so many. He left us some written stories of his youth that many of you have heard. We also have some letters of gratitude from those he mentored and encouraged.
The story of his life is made up of the way friends of every age became family to him.
We will be selecting, organizing, and self publishing a book* to help us all celebrate, remember, and keep these stories close to our hearts.


Live the legacy of love and laughter

Twister wore many hats with character, comedy, charity, and compassion.

He told the most entertaining stories and turned everyday encounters into lasting impressions of kindness, giving so many others stories to tell.
His is a legacy of small moments and big gestures of compassion and service.
We invite everyone to participate in expanding the reach of his influence.
