Oh man, what a shame. I loved him and had the pleasure of meeting him once. He was a really friendly guy with a big heart who enjoyed his years.
Perhaps the most interesting story about MCD is this - he was supposed to be the bodyguard for Notorious BIG the night he was shot and killed, but decided to switch duties with another person. Yeah, it's mentioned in the article, but still really interesting to me. I remember him saying that, had he been on duty, Biggy would not have died that night (due to where he normally sat in the vehicle versus where his replacement sat that night)
RIP man...you'll be missed.
