SlapperCast Episode 21: The Man From Omaha

Jeff Quinn

This week on SlapperCast, Patrick, Mike and Chad tell the story of our dear friend Jeff Quinn—the subject of our song “The Man From Omaha”—who passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in February 2015. Jeff’s spirit was so strong that it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. In the short time we knew him, every second of his life was a celebration, and we were honored to be a part of it. He loved to laugh and was always smiling. His friendship also gave us a whole new extended family and second home in Omaha, Nebraska, something we know will always endure.

  1. Amy and I brought Ted and Jeff out to see you at the Saucer. Ted came to Houston for work and we would go see hockey and we went and saw Blaggards!!!

  2. Aha, the missing link! That certainly makes a hell of a lot more sense than Jeff and Ted just randomly showing up at Flying Saucer. Thanks buddy, we’ll have to include an addendum in the next show.
