Thank you for your service. Zummy was a valued member of our golf group. He was always fun to be paired with. My favorite memory was helping to pick corn along the different courses in the fall. Zummy always took some nice ears home for his squirrels. He was very much missed and spoke of kindly and often when he finally had to give up golf. Thanks for the memories and hit them long and straight. With great affection, Richard D. First
