My Father-In-Law pasted away yesterday morning at the Eastern Nebraska Veterans Home. They had just moved into the new facility a week ago. He was 86 yrs young. He had served in the Air Force in WWII. and was stationed in Alaska.
He is the one that got me into fishing after I started going with my wife.
He will be surely miss by many.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. In many ways, his is one of the "greatest generations" and their contributions should never be forgotten and always honored.
