Call to Chuck Cohen July 1, 2011
Father-in-law loved history. Often, when traveling around northeast Ohio, he would take time from visiting customers and prospective customers to spend time visiting cemeteries.
Married in 1960. Showed him his memorabilia collection and it included Alsbacher document.
