  • Helped his mother run Sloan's Cottonwood Resort at Indian Lake, OH where he would sit in for the drummer during practice with all of the big bands of the 1930s. Then when it came time to play, the drummer was usually too drunk, so they would have him play with them.
  • Living with his mother when he died (bad nerves and couldn't stay at home by himself). He was watching the Ed Sullivan show and about half way through told his mother that he was tired and was going to bed. A couple of minutes later she heard a thud in the bathroom. He had a heart attack and fell and hit his head on the radiator (that is what she had heard). He was already dead.
