My condolences to Mark and Eric - I remember your father as a great guy with a great sense of humor and the energy to keep up with you as young kids. I remember our Indian Guides trips and then later the Boy Scout adventures with Troop 309. Your father lives on in all of our great memories.

My sympathy and prayers are with Otto's family. I knew Otto very well for many years in South Plainfield, beginning with Indian Guides - "Pals Forever" was the slogan. Later on, when Mark and Eric were older, Otto was a key member of Troup 309 - someone who culd always be counted upon to help. Otto loved his family and was a very kind and unselfish man. If only more of us could follow his example.
