Dave, I can't thank you enough for sending me a copy of that photo. I have it on my "wall of family" and it is my most favorite photo of him. When he had his finger to his lips as he does in that photo, I knew his mind was very active. Reminds me of the statue of "The Thinker".

Thank you again,
Sheryl

In 2008, after his 3rd heart attack, his doctor told him he could go camping only if a hospital was within 15 miles of the campsite. He was devastated. He stayed as Scoutmaster but didn't go on many campouts after that.

I was Scoutmaster of our local troop for almost 18 years. Mentored 24 Eagles, including my 4 sons. Camping was the really fun part. Winter, summer, spring, fall, it was all good. Doing Space Ex MB kept me into the rockets at the same time....
