I knew Jeff "Pepe" Stanton from Camp Springs youth club football & baseball and we have been good friends ever since thru Taney Jr High, Crossland a University of Maryland where we were Sigma Nu Fraternity Brothers.  Pepe was a loveable guy who never harmed anyone, was fun to hang out and party with, and lived his life according to Pepe's rules.......anything beyond age 40 is a bonus.  Although he had health issues in the end that curtailed some of his regular activities and proclivities, he ended up with 26 bonus years!  Right up to the end, he had his bingo, scratch-offs and occasional lottery tickets to keep his juices flowing.  A funny story about how Pepe was.....

Back in College, Pepe had gone to the dentist one day and he was very disappointed.  The dentist told him that he had the gums of a 40 year old man and this bothered him somewhat.  Fast forward to when my Daughter Terry was attending University of Maryland and my wife Debbie and I had joined her and her roommate Nancy for a Maryland football game and then went to the local watering hole in College Park...Town Hall to possibly hookup with Pepe for a beer or so after the game.  We got there first and got a booth and were into our 2nd pitcher when Pepe finally showed up and joined us.  A few more pitchers later and we're all feelin pretty good and I asked Pepe, "Whatever happened with your teeth & gum situation since years ago you had gotten a less than encouraging diagnosis."  Wthout missing a beat, he pulls his teeth out, drops them in his half glass of beer and says, "Oh, you mean these."  I thought Debbie, Terry and Nancy were going to die laughing.  This was classic Pepe.

He was certainly a character and one-of-a-kind.  I am glad to have known him as long as I did and will always fondly remember our friendship and the good times and laughs that we had together.

Rest-in-Peace my good friend....Jimmy Epps

Rest in Peace Pepe.  You were a different breed man.  Never failing to post - even if way beyond the agreed rendesvouz time.  I remember how you used to laugh so heartily at your own jokes....while looking mirthfully at others with a sense of "Don't you get it?!"   I also remember you most recently trying to peddle that "bag-o-clubs" at the Crossland Golf tournament.  Many of which had WOODEN shafts.  Priceless move.  You were consitently the very last guy to leave the party - even if that meant stumbling out of a back bedroom in the morning to find you still sitting on the couch with the groove worn out on "25 or 6 to 4". (In fact,  while I know he is gone - has anybody looked in the living room?) 

I know our paths diverged many years ago but I have many fond memories.  And for those I say "Thank you Pepe".
