I saw a note in my news feed on Facebook from the PBA that said that [censored] Hoover, the man credited with planting the seed of an idea that led to Eddie Elias' creation of the PBA over 50 years ago, has passed away at age 79. frown

I don't know much about him, but am thankful for his contribution to the creation of the PBA. May he rest in peace, and condolences to his family and friends.
