LIVING FOR THE WEEKEND - Afro American

Monday, October 24, 2016

Vibrations motorcycle festival took us to a place in time as we drove through Carson City and the road leading to Virginia City and the Ponderosa.“What the world needs now is love sweet love.”-Dionne Warwick The tragic and senseless murder of our friend Chef Michael Bates, instructor at Strafford Culinary School and chef extraordinaire, has left us once again wondering “what’s going on” when it’s easier to kill someone ‘in cold blood” than to “reach out and touch somebody’s hand”. Chef Mike, at 48 years of age, was a role model for the city of Baltimore. He was large in statue yet gentle in heart. Chef Mike was passionate in his love for people, food and fine cigars. He never hesitated to greet you with a bear hug and a taste of his newest cuisine.The last time I saw Chef Mike was at Suited to Succeed’ s fundraiser where he grabbed me by the hand, taking me across the floor to his food station bypassing the other food stations so I could sample the food his students had prepared. To the three young men who allegedly robbed and killed Chef Mike after he had given you his possessions, you robbed Baltimore of a precious jewel and yourself of a friend who would have helped you had you only asked. You represented the youth he mentored, so sorry you missed a great opportunity. To his mother Debbie Bates, Aunt Jackie Hamilton and family members, Chef Mike’s living was not in vain. Family hour is Oct. 7 at Wylie Funeral Home, 701 N. Mount Street from 4 p.m.to 8 p.m.Maxine Dixon, a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Baltimore County Chapter has joined Heaven’s choir. Maxine’s voice would linger in the rafters with her emotional rendition of Reverend Paul Jones “I won’t complain.” Omega services is Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Wylie Funeral Home 9200 Liberty Road.Family and friends are mourning the death of Wilburt LeRoy Simms, son of Mary and Reggie Haysbert after a short illness.

One of the last survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack on the USS Arizona dies at 94 - The Denver Post

Monday, October 10, 2016

Island, his son told the Associated Press. Haerry was 94.Steve Szydlowski, Providence Journal via Associated PressRaymond Haerry is photographed at at West View Nursing & Rehabilitation in West Warwick, R.I., on April 20. Haerry was one of the last living crew members on the USS Arizona during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.Haerry’s son called him one of the first heroes of World War II. After swimming to shore, he found a gun and opened fire on the attacking Japanese warplanes. He spent the next few days recovering the bodies of his shipmates.Nearly four of every five men on the ship were lost, some 1,177 men. Almost half of the 2,400 U.S. servicemen who died on that day were on the Arizona. Another 429 sailors and marines were killed when the USS Oklahoma was torpedoed and capsized.Some were never recovered and remain entombed in the wreckage.Afterward, Haerry served for 25 years in the Navy, retiring as a master chief. He lived with his wife of 70 years, Evelyn, at a nursing home in West Warwick, Rhode Island.Haerry’s passing means there are only five surviving members of the USS Arizona, according to the Arizona Republic. The dwindling numbers was noted in a 2014 story by The Washington Post’s Peter Holley:“With Pearl Harbor survivors well into their 90s and some passing the century mark, their numbers are shrinking not just in Louisiana, but all over the United States. How many of the 60,000 or so survivors are left? Nobody seems to know, exactly.“Last year, 2,000 to 2,500 survivors were thought to be still alive, according to Eileen Martinez, chief of interpretation for the USS Arizona Memorial.‘They are in their twilight years, so now is the time to honor them and thank them for their service,’ she told the Reuters news agency last year.“On (Dec. 7, 2014), four of the nine remaining members of the USS Arizona Reunion Association gathered with dozens of other World War II veterans at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center in Honolulu ...

Tennessee after finding out what happened to her father.Gilbert, 65, was shot Wednesday by 77-year-old Larry Rosenberg.Before that, Rosenberg shot 74-year-old Larry Warwick inside Warwick’s apartment at the affordable senior living complex in northeast Cheyenne and went outside to shoot and kill 45-year-old Matthew Wilson, who worked there.He fled the scene after the shootings and fatally shot himself about an hour later.“Larry, the shooter, went inside, and he knew exactly where the other Larry was at,” Giersch, Gilbert’s daughter, said.Warwick’s condition is unknown, though police continue to confirm he remains alive.Giersch said he is being treated at CRMC, but he is listed as a privacy patient, so she didn’t feel comfortable commenting further.“Greg and him were close – very, very close,” Lyday said. “But he can’t get up and go talk or ask about him, so hopefully they’ll be able to (connect). He did ask about Larry, and he’s worried about him.”In fact, all three victims were close friends, Lyday said.“Matt and the Larry inside and Greg were all friends, really good friends. They liked to hang out and do things,” she said.A close friend of Wilson’s family set up an online fundraising page Friday to help the family with funeral costs because he did not have life insurance.Renee Conner said that within a few hours of setting up the Go Fund Me page, it had raised more than $1,000 toward the $10,000 goal.“I just figured, you know, maybe the community wants to be able to help this family as well,” she said by phone.Conner wrote on the fundraising page for Wilson that “the world lost an amazing man in a senseless tragedy.”He “was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. When he wasn’t with his family, coaching football, or playing with his grandbabies, he was watching the Denver Broncos. His daughter just got married and has a new baby on the way,” the page says.“Matt loved to laugh! You could hear h...
