This book contains sixty-eight stories of some of the greatest athletes, coaches, managers, owners, announcers and journalists who have now passed away. Also included are the author’s own personal encounters with most of these sports icons. The timeline spans back 15 years from 1995 to 2009. These are their stories. They are all here, from Mantle to McKay, Payton to Patterson, “Wilt” to Williams, and Unitas to Upshaw. Some of them were thought of as “more famous” than others, but each was considered one of the best in his own time. It’s quite a list. 

Andy Purvis lives in Texas. He has been in restaurant management for over 30 years and has always had interest in and extreme knowledge of sports. He has had a radio talk show about sports with a couple of different partners for 13 years and continues as a guest host on occasion. Andy maintains contact with sports “greats” and other sports friends.
