My heartfelt condolences go out to my cousin, Claudia, and her family at the loss of her father. He will always be missed.
My earliest memories of Uncle Engelbert are when he joined my family for a driving vacation through France and Italy in 1958 and the following year when we went camping in Italy. My father was stationed at Wiesbaden Air Force Base so we were fortunate to spend time with our grandparents and uncle. My brothers and I loved visiting Uncle Engelbert or having him visit us during the Christmas holidays because he always had time to play with us, take us for a walk and buy us candy, or take us to the zoo. I’m so happy that I was able to see him one more time in 2015 after 37 years.
