  1. Great memories growing up down the street from the VanDeventers on Drexel Ave. I believe my first Pacers game was with Randy and his dad. Mr. VanDeventer was a pleasant and funny guy and he and his wife put up with a lot while Randy and I played basketball in their living room while they watched TV. To this day they were the first and only house I ever saw that had multiple TVs set up so they could watch more than one channel at a time. I am truly sorry for your loss.
