Friends and family gather to remember and honor Ronald "Moose" Morse
HUDSON - Friends and co-workers gathered to remember their friend and support the family of Ronald "Moose" Morse who died in a work-related accident about a month ago.
"He was such a big guy. Anybody that was here would be intimidated, but when you get to know him, he just came out, and he was just such a good guy" said founder of the new Litchfield Cornhole league Brian Fletcher.
Moose passed away on June 11 when a temporary hoist fell off of a building, and when friends found out, they said they knew they had to help out. "We just had to do something" Fletcher said, and so he decided to put on a fundraiser to help out Moose's family.
Moose was a member of the new cornhole league, and "he was always up for a laugh" said his friend and brother-in-law Jeff Hebert.
Moose loved playing cornhole so Fletcher along with his co-founder Shon Haley knew holding a cornhole fundraiser would be the perfect way to help out his family. "He would do it for any one of us" said Fletcher.
All of the proceeds go to his wife and two daughters, the family has also set up a go-fund-me account.
