Sometimes it makes me a little sad to read these and know what comes next. Here in June Dudley Maytubby is driving in the summer sun enjoying his new car. He had just taken the Naval exam in May and looked forward to serving his country. In August, while on a picnic with friends at the Blue River, he drowned while helping to save a young woman. He was posthumously awarded a bronze medal by the Carnegie Hero Foundation.
