Akela! You were and will continue to be an inspiration to so many of us who you mentored as Cubs at St. Paul’s. You were a kind, patient, humble, dedicated man to the scout movement, church, community and most of all to your great family. Sincerest sympathies to the family.

The circle of life is both rewarding beyond words and also difficult, no matter the age of the one you loved. That love will continue until the day of your passing and likely beyond. The hurt is hard to bare but life does goes on. You can be proud of who your dad was...many traits have been passed onto you.
My thoughts are with you
