My dad  Roy Tryhus and Craig's father Clough Cullen were very good friends - together they started a company called KATO Toys - producing a plastic rubberband gun similar to the one kid's made out of wood during their youth.  The company started out strong -  the next hulla-hoop - even made it on the Steve Allen show.  But like so many other small companies without a bus full of lawyers and a few hundred thousand for advertising they went bust. 

Craig and I grew up in the same neighborhood and were good friends through highschool - both Eagle Scouts and we also played music together.  We played as a duo - remember the "Bean Song" - the "Green Briars" ? I think we brought down the house that day in '65.

Craig Cullen died on easter Sunday last year 2011 of throat cancer.  May he rest in peace...

This is a sad surprise.  Maria and I got together with Craig several times while he lived up in Maine.

Real  fond memories of Craig, as a good and decent person, even as a young guy! When it wasn't that easy to be to be one.
