Hi Janis. Chopper moved to Ottawa from El Paso, Texas in 1961. Lived in my hood and we met at Woodroffe High School in Grade 10.

By the way My prayers are with Chopper's Family & Friends over his loss I'm very sad right now as much as you are Janis & all back at CKCU.

There are many myths - in the good sense - of how Chopper got his name. I've heard many great versions over the years. For Dennis Ruffo and I our story is that John 'Pits' Parker named him at Woody High due to his resemblance to the dog on Yacky Duck cartoon. Thanks for this Janis - it is helping a lot.

It is a shame it is in times like these that we are brought together; likewise it is comforting that we can turn to one another now.
