Yea, he was such a humble guy and very generous. He was there (Cody, WY) for the Winchester Museum opening and I met him during a party. After watching all of his movies, I remembered (as a kid) he always seem to drink out of a flask. So, when I met him, I said, "Don't worry Mr Wayne, we have plenty of Whiskey!"
I guess he thought that was funny so he later asked if I wanted to be in the 4th of July parade with him the next day. I had breakfast with him and his daughter, and then went in the parade. Just a great memory for sure!
