    You made an indelible impression on all those who knew you, and as well as serving your country you served your community.
    Your story is similar to many of your vintage who experienced both the 1930 depression years and a world war.
    You worked hard and made a new world for those who followed and we are grateful we can learn from you and your contemporaries.
    You embraced the changes that came your way with enthusiasm.
