In Honor of

Brian Hewitt

Brian is one of my Martial Arts instructors in the United Fighting Arts Federation, and he has also been my Home, Auto, and Life Insurance agent for the last twenty-plus years. When I worked out at North Las Vegas Karate Academy, he used to kick my behind every time we sparred. I was fortunate as a lower belt to be one of the few adults in the class, so I got to fight the Black Belts on a regular basis. My favorite memory of working out with him was when sparring he had a big smile while he was teaching me a lesson on keeping my hands up and checking the kicks when they came in. He is definitely someone you don't want to get into a tussle with.

He currently is a cancer survivor and is in remission.

In Memory of

Gary Jacobson

Gary, better known as Gary the Mime, was a member of my Relay For Life Family and has been one of our ambassadors over the years. My favorite memory of him was during COVID-19. We had to have a drive-through relay, and he was our grand marshal. He was in costume, driving his little red convertible car, waving and having a grand old time.

He was a long-term cancer survivor who recently lost his battle with Cancer.  He will be deeply missed.  Relay won't be the same without him


Here was his video on being a cancer survivor

Becky Liston

Becky is a member of my Relay For Life Family. I don't know of a time that she has not made me laugh every time we meet. She is feisty, and my favorite words to hear from her are " Bridge, Shut Up" after I have given her some playful banter. Her fun-loving personality lights up the room.


She is a long-time cancer Survivor

In Honor of

Ken Gallacher

Ken is the President and Grandmaster of the United Fighting Arts Federation. He is a cancer Survivor.

He lives by faith and leads by example. He treats everyone like a member of his family.

My favorite memory of him was during a sparring class in which I was sparring with my instructor, his Daughter, Master Tara Cox. I was practicing spinning heel kicks, and she lunged in. I threw a blind technique, which caught her in the face near her eye. He was so concerned for his daughter that he bum-rushed me out of the way to get to her. He is small in stature but big in power! Don't be fooled he is deadly.  I learned a valuable lesson that day. No blind techniques!
