He trained as a dental technician who was stationed in Greenbrier, W.Va., where he treated many injured WWII veterans.

Eileen, and Family, Hadie will be missed. You both have always been so good to me. Hadie always took time to ask how I was doing in school. Hadie and Pap fishing, boating, and playing cards. I remember one July, Hadie, Pap, Jason, and I went out the run to seine for minnows. Instead we came back with turtles and had races. Thanks for the wonderful memories, you are in my thoughts.
