leo p. hamel, 1918-2011.

I received a message that Mr. Hamel passed away on Oct. 23. I met him briefly and took his portrait as an intern for the Valley News last year. The article was for the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America and Hamel was the first cub master for Troop #38. He was kind, easy going, and even though we had just met, he talked to me like we knew each other for years.
