It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of our Adjutant, Past Finance Officer, and Past Post Commander Earl Belcher. Mrs. Belcher advised me at 2:46 pm today of his passing. He was at the UK hospital fighting the pneumonia resulting from his COVID infection. This ends a 6 months hospital struggle with continuing and debilitating health issues resulting from complications of a successful abdominal surgery.
Earl was a Viet Nam Veteran and served in both the US Navy and Air Force. He was bigger than life in many ways. While this is a personal loss for all of us, we can take comfort knowing he is now at peace with his Lord. We have a Post today due to his belief in the Legion mission, our Post, and extensive personal contributions..
May the Lord bless Earl's family and his friends in our Post and District!
