I will always remember him walking the neighborhood in Hickoryvale and waving and stopping to chat with his neighbors. Though I moved to the county 13 years ago, his memory will be with my kids and me forever. He was truly a member of our Greatest Generation, and will be missed by anyone whe met him.
