My Father, "Tiger Rag" - Obit

I do not know if this is allowed on here, but here goes. My father, who went by the username "Tiger Rag" was an avid member of Tigernet. Unless he had a medical issue or was attending a Clemson football game, he was on Tigernet everyday. He used "Tiger Rag" as his user name because he played in the Tiger Band back in the 60s. Unfortunately, my father passed away on the evening of Friday, March 22, 2024. I am going to try to attach the obituary if I can. I do not come here often, so we shall see how this works.

Go Tigers!!

Btw, he MAY have been a part of the Doner's Den????, but I really do not know. He was one of Clemson's biggest fans from his youth. He attended every home game from 1962 until mid 2023 when he fell and cracked a vertebrae in his back. After that incident, my father continued to go to Clemson to tailgate with Joe Watson and friends, even though he could not make it into the standium any longer.

I am sure they were in the band together. My daddy said he was in that picture as well. He never got to point out where, though. A few weeks ago, my husband and I went to the Clemson Symphonic concert honoring Dr. John Butler, the director in the 60's and 70's, and I saved a program for my daddy.
