On August 31st, 2013 at 1000 hours in the morning Grand Count American Legion Post 88 gave a final farewell to my father. It only seemed appropriate that since Dad had his first birthday at the cottage on Grand Lake, Aug. 28th 1914 that his final good by be here too. The following is a Youtube video of the ceremony. I thank his grand daughter Angela Batty Butts and her husband Mike for the recording.
The following is Dad’s obituary as posted in the McCook Daily Gazette:
I thank my life long friend, Roger Leitner, for his work on Dad’s headstone and for planting it in the Grand Lake Cemetery.
