    What an amazing man and decorated veteran. I was blessed to be a family friend when they moved to Refugio, Texas and I have many great memories of him and Kathy. I cherish my friendship with Maggie, whom I remain in contact with still today.
    May God wrap HIS loving arms around this family and comfort them at this difficult time. Rest In Peace Doc...
