I often played as a child in the park that bears your name in Fremont, on Lowry Road, about a mile from where you were killed in the automobile accident. I've always wondered who were, glad to see there are people who still fondly remember you. Thank you for your service to our community. I wish there were some sort of plaque or memorial at the park that told your story.
