Visiting DeWayne in Wenatchee

I am a high school classmate of DeWayne's from Istrouma High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  My wife and I visited DeWayne and Sue in Wenatchee a few years back.  I believe it was during 2001.  By then he'd retired from most activities but continued in his rural mail carrier job.  He loved that job.  At the time he told me that he would keep it "forever", and when he passed away, it would be behind the wheel of his mail delivery vehicle!  I see that he retired from that work a few years back so obviously that didn't happen, but it was plain to see that he liked what he did.  We had great discussions about his pararescue job in the Air Force.  I am a retired Air Force guy so that was of mutual interest.  The Air Force was developing a method of rescuing pilots downed behind enemy lines.  It involved sending up a small balloon with a strong cable or cord attached to the person on the ground.  A C-130 cargo plane flew overhead as slowly as possible, equipped with a large V-shaped catcher device on the nose of the aircraft to snag the line, thus (quickly as one might imagine) hoisting the pilot aboard.  DeWayne volunteered to try out this device.  I love adventure but would have had to get my motor running very fast to have tried that!  It worked but caused too many injuries and was not adopted, but DeWayne was courageous enough to try it.  God bless him for his military service and his friendship during high school and later.  Rest easy, old friend.
