Ginky practiced one night at Chalks Billiards in Warwick RI as he prepared for a Joss Tour event at Snookers the next day. I recognized him but left him alone to do his thing. After an hour or so, he came over and complimented my Andy Gilbert cue. As a fellow cue lover Ginky treated me with respect and we talked for a good hour about who's who in cuemaking. We traded cues for a time and I played with Ginky's personal player for a set as he enjoyed my Gilbert. His praises of my cues made me feel great.

We traded contact info and to my surprise, Ginky stayed in touch. Every month or two the phone would ring. He may have been the best, but he was humble and a friend to me. R.I.P.
