I only wish I got to meet him when I was older, I am his cousin from Florida, his Uncle Marion Frank Lema was my father, worked for Kennedy Space Center. My cousins and Aunts and Uncles are almost all gone on the Lema side now. This is very heart breaking I have to read this online. Rest in peace and thank you for your service.
Love Nancy Lema Henderson
