"Papa Jack" is Gone for a Weil

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

Denver icon "Papa Jack" Weil died Wednesday. The founder and operator of Rockmount Ranch Wear was famous for greeting customers, some famous, most not, at his Wazee Street store for more than six decades. Weil was believed to be the oldest working CEO at 107 and his family says he was "to Western shirts what Henry Ford was to cars."

"Through his influence for over 100 years we learned the importance of hard work and balancing careers with humor and compassion. We came to know the importance of integrity and responsibility, the strength within us to deal with life's challenges, the beauty of carefully chosen words in difficult situations, the power of story-telling and example in conveying values.

"His highest values include respect for others."
Congratulations and 24 points awarded to Live Like You Were Dying. The Rosters and Standings have been updated.
