Dorthea, Dan and Steve,
Please know that we send our thoughts and prayers to you in this time of loss. He was a great man and friend. Our memories of Scouting, and specifically Troop 25, would not be complete without your Dad. He was always there to help and make sure things were done right. He was the cornerstone of the troop's outdoor program. You can't think of our years of camping in the troop without memories of him, the truck, tents, equipment, OA costumes, and of course an occasional large campfire (with the help of his "special starter" liquid) when enough dry wood wasn't available.

We all share in his loss with you and know that he is in a far better place now.
