    Wayne "Hoot" Eggers. My friend. Hoot and Bill Hanesworth took me under their wings from the first time I visited Clinton in January of 1976 with Chemplex Co. I was then stationed in Rolling Meadows Illinois. When we moved to Clinton in 1981 our relationship grew. Hoot was a good friend and mentor for over 40 years. Hoot taught me what work ethic really is.  We had many good times and were together for a few very tough times. Hoot will always be in my heart. God bless the Eggers family during this difficult time.
