A silent dedicated member who
believed in our organization deeply. He was a "go to person" for
activities that needed help any time…. day or night. He loved going to the St. Josephs Ride in Bike show to meet and inform the children
there that needed rough/adult like guidance. He always aided us there at
Christmas to deliver toys and talk to the kids. He loved his shovelhead as he felt that old school was the best school, just like he
felt about his life and long time friends. God Bless and May the Good Lord watch over you as you did silently about
Ellen Mitchell TFT #
loss of Ellen will be heartfelt in many organizations not only Toys for
Tots, but also just about any organizations that ever needed a superior
organizer. She was an integral
part of collectibles and when product needed some organizing she jumped in
with both feet. She was a super moocher always being able to get
freebies for any benefit that needed help. In honor of Ellen, do something for another person,
because that is always what Ellen was about with her life mate Rick. May the Good Lord forever keep
her heart with us, and remember this helper and friend.
Betty "Blue Velvet" Overman TFT #
Despite being ill for sometime and being confined to a wheelchair for the last
few years, she would always make the kickoff party in order
to maintain her membership even. She was the
dearest friend of Debbie Giampa (Stationary Road Blocker leader) and a
dedicated member of the stationary road blocker team at Ogden and Western.
She also was a reliable and dedicated tagger to posterized Western
Avenue before the parade. May the Good Lord take her forever
lasting smile and giving ways and make her time above as peaceful
as she was with us.
Terry "Sugar" Agnello TFT #
Terry started in Tier 2 as a road blocker
in the good old days. When a road blocker had to have that look, …like
don’t do it, unless you want to tangle with me. But behind
his look of toughness was indeed someone who truly cared about aiding
needy children at Christmas. Terry was a force in the tumultuous
eighties, a bit adversarial when needed but with good
intentions.. He will be missed by many, he rode a Harley but
indeed was a Beezer lover (BSA). He was one whose helping hands were always available and would do
whatever to keep our reputation unblemished.

Founder Ed "Animal" Wisniewski, she kept thousands of motorcyclists
covering their jackets and vests with our annual Toys for Tots Run pin.
Her commitment made us recognized worldly, because that red hand

dedication and love of our organization will be remembered forever and may
her time in Heaven keep her loved ones at peace.
