A very sad time for the Engineers' Club - We have lost two long time Life Members this week

Sam Reaves and Dick Ashley.

Sam Reaves Sam passed away on July 6, 2016 after a long illness, surrounded by family. Sam had been a member since 1956, worked on many committees and served as President in 1968. He was a WWII veteran - a ball turret gunner in Europe. Sam founded the company now known as "The Reaves Firm" and 'retired' in 2001. Sam was 90.

Dick Ashley Dick passed away on June 30, 2016 after a long illness, surrounded by family. Dick had been a member since 1961, worked on many committees and served as President in 1972. He was a WWII veteran and a Purple Heart recipient. He retired from United Paint Co. as executive vice president after 30 years. Dick was 92.

Both of these gentlemen were patriots, leaders in their fields, successful businessmen, mentors to their friends and just all around great guys. They will be sorely missed. Our loss is heaven's gain. Go in peace.
