Roy Rich, of Van Buren, died on Oct. 24, just nine days before his 102nd birthday. He was born on the family farm in Lincoln, and grew up in the Van Buren area. He served three years in the South Pacific during World War II.
When he came home from the war, he married his beloved Avon, who preceded him in death after 69 years of married life.
Roy is survived by his two children, Mike and Rhonda; three grandchildren and their spouses; also nine great-grandchildren.
Roy lived a good, long, Christian life and leaves his examples and many good memories, for all who follow.
There was no Kitchen Band Tuesday, but hopefully we will continue meeting in November.
I was all ready to go Tuesday, when my neighbor came by for a short visit, then Edwin came, and soon, Anna came. They started to visit, which I fully enjoyed, and it was too late to go, anyway, no trip for nothing. Anna and Edwin finished picking up the walnuts in the front yard, so I got to mow that afternoon. The mower found some walnuts they had missed. Those hardwood maple leaves covered them up.
My squirrel will find any others missed, and I will pull up little trees next Spring where he has buried them.
Happy birthday to Matt Pinkerton, Willis Winkler, Brandon Bradley, John Griscom, Wesley Martsching, Patrick Wooton, Jean Helm, Jimmy Chambliss, Kathy Farmer, Tracy Pitts, Ivan Cushing, Dick Watson.
Happy anniversary to Paul and Wanda Brakebill.
Happy years, all!
