Ardie, Prayers are with you Ardie, you helped me by giving me a job and I’ll never forget how that helped. Wouldn’t have survived otherwise. Hang in there you can do it. Phil

Ardie is a friend to all. I know I am a beneficiary of his many unselfish gifts and kindness. Never wanted anything in return. You taught us well. Get well Ardie. The world is a better place with you in it. Especially today. Mike Pugh

Ardie GET WELL soon.
I got to know Ardie at Dayton Chaminade HS my Senior year as I was the right defensive end, he was “my” outside linebacker, oh how many times did I take the inside fake and left him on the “island!”
In spite of all that we ended up 7-2-1.
God Bless you brother, your DTN team is rooting for you!

Get well soon Ardie!
During my years at UD, there were a whole bunch of Delts that got their beer money as a result of Ardie and Zonin Wines.
When Richie was President and committed to 1) making money on a high end wine raffle (who won?? Delt treasury, that’s who) and a party with a sorority every other weekend or more (our house, sorority split cost of the beer) Ardie was our partner. Jennie Cream Ale half kegs for $28.50 and…no deposit. We were assholes and, as there was no incentive to return the empties….there was consistently 15 empty kegs on the back porch of 336-338 Lowes!
During my junior or senior year Cedric Foster was working for Ardie in a “real job” as the accountant. He got his hands on 10 cases of wine(godawful stuff) and threw a party at his apartment. I found the lord that night, but do not know how I drove back to the Ghetto.
When we were chasing down email addresses in 2008/9, Ardie called me and gave me his granddaaughter’s email address. Couldn’t be bothered
Great guy. Get well soon
Sending prayers for a speedy recovery.
I worked for Ardie for 2 years – the Man. GET WELL SOON. Russ
