Fitz Woodrow

I paid my respects yesterday to Fitz Woodrow at the Arlington service. There was a big crowd at the service from his family and friends. I didn't know Fitz at the Academy and I only met him when I came to Washington on my last Navy duty. I did have the pleasure then of working with him on class functions, lunches, picnics, and reunions. I served as one of his Vice-Presidents while he was class President.
 I don't know any individual who contributed more to develop the unity we enjoy as a class than Fitz.
Yesterday I sat with Jerry and Lois Krumwiede, Dora Bell, Joan Alger and Mildred Damico at the reception and we talked about Fitz and the times that were with the Class of 54. Those times were happy times that I am glad that I was a part of.
Fitz was a good Marine, a good classmate, a good man, but most of all a good friend.
I will miss him.
