I too am a veteran of WWII and served on IPD from 1950. I had never worked with Bill personally but I had him work a couple of times on security at the Holiday Inn at West and Washingto Streets. He wa a great person and will surely be missed by
myself and others he had contact with. I plan on attending during visatation times but if for some reason I cannot make it, please send my prayers and condolences to the entire famly of 'Bill Babbitt. Maurice 'Mauri' Stout, Retired 1950-1984
