      When I first met Scratch I told him, “So your the famous Scratch I’ve been hearing about.” Well that came from a friend of his who mentioned him often to me. I was so honored and blessed to have finally met him and gotten to know the wonderful man he was. He will be deeply missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

    I’ve known Scratch for a long time. We rode Harleys together a lot. He and I bought identical Harleys back in 1988. FLHTC in the cream and gold paint job. He’s sill has his in the garage. Every now and then I would see Scratch out walking when I was walking my dogs and we would talk about those bikes and the rides we went on together. He always got me in trouble with my wife when people would see his Harley sitting somewhere and I was at work but they thought it was my bike. We had some good laughs together. I will miss him.
