john peck's avatar Shoot! 58 is really young! BUT he had such an amazing list of things that he had accomplished. What a great person to look up to!

Very sad. He was the keynote speaker at ACE's Coaster Con banquet in 2004 at Cedar Point. He was very knowledgeable of not only Cedar Point, but of many of the northern Ohio parks, past and present. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the conclusion of the banquet and he was very courteous and pleasant to talk with. My condolences to his family.
