Summers was a friend since first grade, the last time I saw him was at the Light House Inn in October with a lot of our class mates , we had a fun evening together. He had a beautiful smile and was always kind to every one. He will be missed. Sending prayers to his family

His struggles are over...but he will be missed! The sideways grin that broke into the slow great laugh.
Always able to make everyone smile and laugh.

My sympathies are with you guys!

I grew up with Summers. We were proud Clinton boys. Summers was full of spunk, witty and happily mischievous. I am saddened to learn of his death.
