Mr. Couture will be sorely missed. He was a great man and big supporter of Athletics. He was always at our baseball games and cheering us and Joey on ! I believe he led us to victory many times with his enthusiasm and positive spirit. I will miss him, and pray for Joe and the entire Couture family in this difficult time.
