NBC affiliate WNDU ran a story recently on the passing of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper with comments from Piper’s longtime friend and on-air partner, “Cowboy” Bob Orton.
“I had just talked to Roddy a couple of days before and he sounded great,” said Orton of Piper’s passing in the article. “So yeah, at first you just don’t believe it. You have to let it sink in. It’s starting to now after what they just did out there and you realize you’re not going to see him again and it’s a shame. He’s going to be missed.”
Orton continued, “He could always make you laugh. No matter how you felt, how down you were, how much the road could get to you, he could always make you laugh. Just a great guy. Everybody loved him.”
