That would be me and to this day that is how I read his posts....and will read posts from the past.

There are things that can be questioned on this board but GA's loyalty is not one of those things. RIP and sorry for your loss.

The words that keep coming to mind for me is consistent and persistent. He never wavered. Rest in peace Ronnie. There are few here that I would shed a tear for, he would be one.

Wow! So sad to hear. GA was probably the most loyal fan that I've ever seen. We have truly lost a great one.

This place won't be the same without the GA. Always enjoyed his passion for the Tigers. Never met him, but feel like I lost a friend. RIP Gray Avenger, you will be missed.

Didn't he post as recently as a few days ago? I had no idea he was having health issues. I loved his passion for football and was a firm believer that the school needs to put football first. It will not be the same around here at all

RE: The Gray Avenger
WOW! So sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I got a chance to meet GA at the Memphis-Tulsa football game in Tulsa this past fall, after many years of conversing with him on the board. He was a true fan (fanatic) and a quality human being. He will be missed.

I would like to make a motion that one of our boards/sub-boards be named in his honor. If ANYONE ever deserved to be memorialized on mt.org, it was The Gray Avenger!

Sorry to hear this, even though I didn't know him personally, and we didn't always agree on things here on the board, he was a true blue Tiger fan and will be missed. RIP, the sky in Memphis will be PMS280 in his honor!

RE: The Gray Avenger
As a member of the former Tiger football player family, I would like to express my gratitude for his consistent support of this program and University over the years. He always shined a bright and focused light. A simple thank you cannot express our gratitude to your father the Gray Avenger. God bless him and your family.
