Obits for Harold Volkmer
Here's Harold's obituary from the online version of St. Louis Times Dispatch.
Here's one by the Associated Press.
A brief one in the New York Times.
The Boston Globe probably uses a term for the first time: Harold Volkmer: Mo Congressman backed gun rights" .
I'm starting to write a memorial article for Harold (which was how he liked to be called) but keep starting to tear up. He was such a good, and great, guy. In terms of what he did, a giant. In terms of personhood, he was just Harold, a thoughtful, slow-talking fellow who went nowhere without his wife, Dian, and spoke of growing up in rural Missouri.
