A life long friend of incredible stubbornness he was known as a hard nose German. He would lend a helping hand when needed, and stand up for people's rights. An avid Marine, he would go hiking all over the hills of Bally and Barto. He' d never give up. When he left Vietnam, he came directly to New York City to see me, and we went to see my Mom in PA separately as I couldn't get permission to leave an all women's school. But that didn't stop him. He slept in the lobby of my housing until I could go outside where he planted a welcome home kiss on me that all the passerbys clapped and cheered. He was some character. I will miss him, and pray we all will see our loved ones in heaven.
