Bill



This is a picture of my father in law in 1942. He died a few weeks ago, and we're flying to Florida for a memorial service tomorrow.

He was such a handsome guy. He had a great life, lived to 94 and was still playing golf until a terrible fall right after Christmas. He was still working out at the gym until then.

Later in his life he looked a lot like Walt Disney. Lovely guy-- we'll miss him.

Thanks Jean. Neither son got the looks but we love them anyway. He has a little Native American blood in there.

What a great photo. I am so sorry. It's wonderful he played golf and worked out at that age!

I'm sorry.
He certainly was a looker. I'm impressed that he remained active into his nineties.
Wow. What a role model.
Any chance he's distantly related to Disney?
