I got the phone call about an hour ago. We knew it was coming, but it's still sort of a surprise when the phone rings... . Dad died today around lunchtime after fighting cancer for about a year. These last few weeks he was often very tired but he wasn't in much pain.|
He made many good friends during his time in the 19th squadron, and I know he always enjoyed attending reunions whenever he could. I went to one of those, Oshkosh in the late 70's. It was fun seeing him turn into a 22 year old again for a couple days!
He's survived by his wife of 56 years, five children, five sons- and daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren. We will all miss him, and I'm proud he was my dad...
