For the love of the game

This is my husband Larry Brooks. Looking so very proud and happy in his retirement to take up employment at mostly the Rangers games or any other jobs offered. I can’t even put into words how much this meant to him. Having worked without any days off between Uniroyal and Goodrich for almost 40 years, having this responsibility and purpose and most of all the social contact and making new friends brought him so much joy. Other ushers and also patrons will remember his unending supply of JOLLY ROGER CANDY. This picture was taken when they had recently switched from burgundy suit jackets to the blue sport jacket and lime green shirts. Can’t remember who took the photo but a huge Thank you for capturing this proud moment. Alas a stroke curtailed things a bit but his employer was more than accommodating in welcoming him back. Then Covid hit.
