Les Switzer passed away yesterday. He didn't have any "direct" connection to Western, but I'd bet quite a few of you folks knew him or at least knew of him.

Specifically, he owned The Regulator, then Rocky's Bar & Grill, and a few other properties including part-owner of the building on the square where Petland (which my dad owned) and Camera Land (which I was manager of for 5 years) was located. He was a longtime member of the Leatherneck Club and a major sponsor of the WIU Athletics Golf Outing.
