I have enjoyed his writing.  I've loaned out my books by him to folks who needed cheering up.
My friends and I will sometimes point out how what we are doing or about to do is similar to a story.  The deer on the bicycle comes to mind as the last story referenced for what they were about to do.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

As did I. He had a unique talent for describing a situation with good humor. Rest well, Pat.

He described his fly casting technique as similar to an old lady chasing a bumble bee with a broom stick.

If you read The Huckleberry Murders (I think that's the title) he has the current state of huckleberry picking accurately portrayed.  He wrote a few mystery books--nothing exceptional but OK.
