FRATERNITY BROTHER

W.C. and I were members of Kappa Alpha Order at Duke University in the 1960s. I am two years older than W.C. and we KAs rushed him hard. Not only was he from Henderson, NC - home of several brothers such as Bruce Chappell, Ed Payne and John Moore - but we spotted a caliber young man among the many applicants coming through our doors.

I was shocked by his death in 1967 and attended two memorial services for him. The first was without remains, as I recall. The second was with remains. That funeral was a full military funeral in Henderson. I am reminded that it was at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

I haven't seen his widow Betty G. since the services, but if she should read this, I hope she tells their son what a fine guy W.C. was.

I am pleased that the Wall That Heals has been erected in Johns Creek, Georgia within a few miles of my home. I shall look for W.C.'s name at panel 18E, line 18.

Kent Bishop (T '61)
