Dear Weakley Family, I knew your father as the assistant scoutmaster of Troop 303 in Scenic Hills. I may have been the last Eagle Scout that he worked with. He was a gruff but generous man, and we all were in awe of him and a little frightened at how tough he was. I will never forget the canteen cup he brought to summer camp into which he had scratched the dates and locations of his wounds and where he was treated. I spent many a rainy night escaping a leaky tent alone in the cab of his brown pickup truck. I still regularly use the hunting knife he gave me when I received my Eagle award, and it was his request that I "give something back" that led to my becoming a scoutmaster and assistant scoutmaster myself. I am truly sorry for your loss. I hope that my memory of him offers you some consolation. He was a big part of my childhood and of other scouts, and I will be eternally grateful for him.
