You died before I was born, but my dad (your nephew, Ted Gearhart, Sr) never forgot you. He spoke of you often and I believe he mourned you until his death at age 70. You were very important to him. That was the reason I was determined to get your name on that wall. The documentation took about two years, but it will now last forever. RIP
