Dana left us in December of 1979, followed by Barry ('63) in August of 2001 and Noel in 2010. All of the brothers are together again.

We all shared a lot of memorable times, some of which we were sober enough to remember.  One night on Air Force Beach, and yes a tiny bit of drinking was involved, Dana took his Fathers 1930 something Chevy down the beach on a bet and it got stuck in the sand.  It took a lot of muscle power, but, eventually he made it back to harder ground.  Well, that wasn't so bad.... Let's do it again!  Bad choice.  This time, no return. So, with no choice but to leave it there over night, it sat stuck, below the high tide mark...not good.  The next day we found that the high tide had submerged the car.  With the help of a Model A buggy, a winch and, a few friends, we were able to get it out and, towed west of town and submerged in a fresh water pond. 

Now, what do you do next?  It was a very pristine antique when Mother Ocean decided to submerge it.  Well, what else, cut the body off of it and make a Beach Buggy out of it!  Now try to imagine what his father had to say about that! I should add that his father was living in Massacussets at the time, and came back to Florida to discover his newly modified car.
