“Regarding Rafer, he was a bastion of the sport and someone I aspired to be like both athletically and in character. Everyone who knew him only had good things to say about him. And you never heard Rafer talk about himself. He was a man who had a storied life who used his action to speak more than his words. But, when he did speak you couldn’t help but listen. Seems to me that outside of sport he spent his time on Earth in service of others.”
