Grampa Dave

Grampa Dave Borchardt is a wonderful guy. He's now in
his 90's and going pretty strong. He was a photographer
in the Signal Corps during WW2 and photographed some
of the Anzio invasion. Also took some of the first pictures of
the first operational jet fighter (Messerschmidt 262).

David was an important wedding photographer in Buffalo, New York
for many years. He was active in the Boy Scouts for over 40 years.
He's also an expert wood carver..whittler.

Grampa Dave broke his hip this week and is having surgery
today. We wish him well and God bless!

Jan 19th UPDATE:
Surgery went fine. Grampa Dave is feeling better and will try to
take his first post op steps today!
