I was sure he was immortal.
He was a former Rockingham County School Board member and a County Commissioner.
He once voted to remove the children's book "I Want to Keep My Baby" from the school libraries because the book annoyed an evangelical minister
He once threatened to beat my ass (I forget why) and threatened to sue me when I jokingly told him I had filled out a political questionnaire and signed his name to it.
His daughter was convicted of stealing more than $20,000 from the school system.
He was a terrible Commissioner and School Board member, but the people loved him and he served for decades.
Wink Hoover has died.
