He was a Junior in High School in 1941. He was a member of Forensics, Basketball, Boy Scouts, Boys Chorus and the photography club. That shows a lot of personal ambition at a young age to me. People always told me I looked exactly like my father; I see it now. He told me that by his picture in the next years year book they put the caption, "Let's argue."
God bless him.
