    So sorry to learn of Humpy passing. Ivan worked with Humpy for many years at the cable company and I worked for him a year or so there myself. Humpy was a neat person, we saw him a couple of years ago and he still looked the same as remembered from several years ago.
    God comfort you in your time of grief. In our prayers. Thelma and Ivan

    I had the privilege of driving with him for a couple of years.He was a devoted worker and a true leader.Also he had a heart of gold. I think he would have given anyone the shirt off of his back. I will miss seeing him at the hertz office occasionally

    Dear Ferguson Family,
    The local bluegrass community is mourning the loss of Mr. Ferguson. He was such a sweet man and always happy to be recording the local bluegrass bands, just so he could give them a copy of his DVD’s … He gave us many and we will cherish them. We were very lucky to have him as part of our bluegrass family and we enjoyed the times he was able to come to the potluck/pickin’s at our home. He will be missed by so many of us.
    I’m sure the angels are serenading him right now with his favorite song: Somewhere Between Your Heart and Mine……
    RIP dear, sweet Mr. Ferguson!!
