Remembering Ivan Westerfield, 78 years after Pearl Harbor
As always seems to be the case, there is an Antelope Valley connection to this story. Ivan Westerfield, a 1938 graduate of Antelope Valley High School, was killed serving aboard the Arizona that day and is still onboard.
The Lancaster Cemetery honors him with its Ivan Ayers Westerfield Memorial Walk.
William P. Warford’s column appears every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
