While this title may seem a bit funny, unfortunately this is a sad posting. Gary has been in a group of 7 guys who were friends in college who called themselves the Scumbags. They had gotten together yearly for the last 20-25 years for a guys weekend. Ken Veteto was the main instigator of this group and would plan the trips for them every year. Tragically, Ken was killed in a small plane crash last Saturday along with another family from the Park Plaza Church of Christ in Tulsa. He had called Gary in August on Gary's 50th birthday starting to plan the get together for this fall. He was one of the good guys, really funny and a great doctor. He will be missed by all his patients, co-workers, fellow church members, friends and family and his fellow Scumbags and their families. Every year his dad, Max, would draw caricatures of the guys and they made t-shirts. Max passed away a few years ago and Ken took over the art work. The picture above is the drawing from last year, the guys in Ken's prized Camaro. Top row is Bradley Hemphill, Gary Jones, Larry Bailey, Tim White. Bottom row (l to r) Gary Huntsman, Nathan Parker, Ken Veteto.
Our prayers and thoughts are with Carrie, Cody & Carissa. We will all miss you Ken and your great sense of humor, but someday there will be a Scumbag reunion in Heaven!
