Both of my grandmothers died of pancreatic cancer. I'm surprised that he lived for two years. Hopefully he made the most of them.

He was a local, Columbine High (yeah, that one).

Pancreatic cancer sucks. RIP.

I recall when Akerfelds was nicknamed "KOOL-FM" because of his 94.5 spring training ERA.
