This news breaks my heart and I wish I had the words to express my sorrow. Chef Spain was such a great guy to work with. Working with him at Summit Vista was definitely a highlight for me. He was always smiling, laughing and was just a great down to earth guy. I will miss him dearly and hope all his friends and family always remember Chef for being a wonderful person.
