Taran, Patta, and Marv: I was shocked and saddened to hear about Tanner. I will forever treasure my memories of Tanner. Tanner had an electric personality and he would always brighten my day. Tanner made me a better person, teammate, and competitor. I will be forever indebted to him. I will never forget playing baseball, golf, and basketball with him or cruising around in his Silver Prelude. I am fortunate and grateful to have called Tanner my teammate and friend. Sincerely, Will
