In Memorium - 'Doc' Besecker

Doc receiving one of his many awards from the Chapter

'Doc' Joe Besecker died peacefully, Sunday Aug 4, 2019.

A beloved pediatrician in his 'real life', he was known in DTU for his love of fishing and his willingness to volunteer for many chapter activities. He gained a measure of immortality by getting stuck up to his knees in veritable quicksand on one replanting project.

As one of our younger members commented, you might not know him personally, but you knew he was present at a meeting by the abundant laughter all around him.

A kind and friendly gentleman, his like will not come among us frequently.
