A Tribute to Verne "Bulldog" Williams

Verne "Bulldog" Williams, a good friend of the Gavin family and a truly unique gentleman and scholar of the sport of boxing, passed away on October 14th at the age of 75.

Al Gavin Jr sent us this personal message about Bulldog....

Bulldog was a friend of my father's. You knew you were a friend when you were invited to one of Dad's barbeques, and Bulldog and his wife Sue were always there. He brought a certain persona to the table that was not like anyone else. 

When Dad passed, Bulldog was there. He remained a friend to me, calling sometimes once in six months, sometimes twice a week. He always made me laugh, and vice versa, always an animated conversation. 

Now he is gone too, much like Dad, much too soon.His love of boxing and life in general was to be admired. I know he hanging out with Dad, probably at the fights, and that Ill see the both of them again one day.  

RIP pal. Al Gavin Jr.
