Bob Hauf  remembers:
The things I remember about him is that he was wounded in World
War II and walked with a slight limp.  He entertained us at times by telling of his times in the war and especially by telling us how he used to knit his own socks using cord or string while he was in the Army.  I remember him as a good teacher and he was generally liked by the kids.  He taught as a team with Gwen Rumsey who passed away sometime ago.
