Pretty shocked as most were this morning when I learned of his unexpected passing. Way too young. Interesting story. I have a good buddy I grew up with in my hometown of Moberly, Mo named Brent Briscoe. Brent, we played ball together when we were young. He was my shortstop on the baseball team when I pitched. Brent is a good guy. Always had a dream of moving to Hollywood and becoming a full time working actor. Most in Moberly thought he was just dreaming. I thought he might just pull it off. Well he did, he has had a very good career out there and made several films. It is always fun listening to his stories. Well Brent was in a film back in 1998 titled A Simple Plan. He was in it with Bill Paxton and Billy Bob Thornton. I remember him saying what a sincerely good guy Paxton was. Brent could not say enough good things about the man. And Brent always tells it like it is. Sounds like Hollywood lost one of their truly good people. A legitimate good guy and not a self absorbed jerk, and evidently they are plentiful out there. Gone way too soon. 

Rest in peace Bill Paxton.
