I first met General Register when I provided a hotel shuttle for GT games.В  Somehow he just knew I had served in the military.В  He was very humble except when it came to his Yellow Jackets.В  I enjoyed his and his families company whenever they were in town for a game.В  From a Georgia Bulldog fan and a veteran, I thank you for your service to our country.

So sorry to hear ofВ  General Register's passing.. I enjoyed his friendship thru Georgia Tech basketball events and letter men games. He was truly a "Tech Man". My prayers for all the extended family during this time of deep sorrow.

We new Ben simply as our friend Bennie.В  I first met Bennie on the basketball court at the GA Tech Letterman'sВ 
annual basketball games.В  We played together at the "Old timer's" games for too many years too count, and our GT
basketball season tickets were near each other.В  He was not afraid to share his opinion of the poor officiating with all
who sat near.В  He will be remembered and missed by the GA Tech family and all who met him. В  В  В

It has been a long time old friend. Rest well. You and Betty were a joy to know and spend time with up in the old T-Club. How I miss those days, sharing time cheering for our Yellow Jackets with a fellow fan from Columbus. We will see you on the other side.
