When I got the call from his son saying he had passed, I was shocked. He had been sick for awhile and I knew he hadn't much time left but I thought it was more than what it was.

We talked just about everyday and I'm going to miss his knowledge about the hobby and many other things. If you ever had the chance to talk with him, you know he was a character. Rest easy friend, I'll miss ya.

Interested in all insignia, photos, and information on the SA-Sanitätsführer
