died July 4, 2003.

Sent: Saturday, July 17, 2004 1:17 PM
Subject: Cleon Harris (Berch) '82

Tammie L Harris

Shreveport, LA 71105

Major Tate,

I know you don't know me but I will explain it all if you read my e-mail. Please do continue to read.

I was registering under classmates and starting exploring the site. I decided while I was there I would look up Lyman Ward Military Academy. I found a link where I continued reading and came across your name. I know of you because my husband. Over the years, my husband has expressed such fond words about you, other teachers, and many of his classmates. My husband, Berch Harris unfortunately died July 4, 2003 of a massive heart attack brought on by an enlarged heart. Basically, his heart gave out on him. His family and friends, most of all by our 11-year-old daughter (Alexis) and myself, sorely miss him. It has been a difficult year on us but fortunately; we have a wealth of memories of Berch that will last us a lifetime.

Berch had become very successful in life. He always maintained a busy work life and active home life. He received his MBA at LSU in Baton Rouge, where he went on to work for Geico for many years before finally branching off on his own in the E-commerce business. Like everything Berch accomplished in life with such tenacity, he soared in his new adventure and became successful virtually overnight, it seemed. He contributed his success in life with the basic background LWMA provided him. He often talked about contacted people from his past but he stayed extremely busy in his short life. He truly was an amazing person and I will forever be honored that I was his wife and friend. He was a very intelligent, handsome, compassionate, loving, and unique individual. I could never adequately express in words the type of man Berch truly was in life. I certainly couldn't do him any justice with words alone. For our daughter and me he was our life, best friend, a wonderful father and husband, and our hero. He was always a happy man, always smiling, always wanting to make sure the people around him were happy. Berch was simply a delightful person to be around

I felt that I should write you to let you know about this tremendous loss and felt like you could share this news with the other Alumni's. I sincerely appreciate a person that has touched his life with such profoundness and you are definitely one of them. Thank you.

Regards,
Tammie Harris


From: Paul Tate - Jul-18 10:56 pm
To: ALL

Tammie Harris, the wife of Berch Harris, Class of 1983, emailed me yesterday to report the untimely death of Berch of a massive heart attack about a year ago. All of us remember Berch (real name Cleon Berchard Harris, Jr) as a fun-loving, friendly, always smiling, super intelligent cadet with an unmatched zest and love of life. Tammie reports that Berch had been most successful (MBA and all that goes with it) in an e-commerce business. In addition to Cammie, Berch also leaves an 11-year-old daughter, Alexis. The Alumni Association and all of us who knew Berch expresses our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to Tammie and Alexis.

Jack Farris Heard, Class of 1938,

died August 22, 2003.

He was a staunch supporter of LWMA and will be greatly missed.

"Heard left Camp Hill during WWII, served thirty years in the Navy, and retired to Huntsville. He is survived by his wife, Maxine, two daughters Dana and Jacqueline, one brother John, three grandchildren, and one great grandson. He was buried in Camp Hill August 25, 2003."

(A note from Ms. DeLene Cawley, in the Alumni Office, dated 8/27/03.)


(The following note is from Earl Langley of Camp Hill.)

I attended his funeral in Camp Hill. I remember both Dana and Jackie coming with their parents to the Universalist Church way back when? Commander Heard, as I always called him, loved the Universalist Church very much. He came as much as he could, but was not able in his later years. I saw him not too long ago? at LWMA. I always enjoyed his company, and we talked Navy sometimes.

You need to get a copy of the book entitled, "Blind Man's Bluff." Jack was a part of that Navy, and his daughter Dana added a forward to many copies of that book, which contained references to Jack's time spent on subs and that period in history.

People like Jack Heard will be missed very much. They don't make them like Jack and my daddy any more? Tom Brokow was correct when he called them the "Greatest Generation." I don't think we will ever see another generation to match them, at least not for a very long time to come!!

Derron L. Owens of Orangeburg, SC, passed away yesterday 1/13/2003. Derron attended LWMA in 1959-60 (7th grade) , 1960-61 (8th) and part of his 9th grade year in 1961-62. Derron was born on 12/27/47 and had just had his 55th birthday. Derron, his wife, Ann and I had become friends over the last three years. Derron wrote three stories for this website on Stories page #4:

http://www.lwalumni.org/stories4.html

They are:

#93 - Alex Kritzky and Me (1961) (New 03/20/01)

#95 - The Big Hunt of 1959 (New 03/20/01) (Snipe hunt)

#96 - LWMA Pets - 1959 - 1960? (New 04/07/01)

He also built a small model of the tin roof boats that he, Alex Kritzky, and others build in 1961. He donated that model to the museum at LWMA and made a frame for a picture of Alex Kritzky to go with the boat. (Photos of these items can be seen at the bottom of the story called "Alex Kritzky and Me.") I will be adding more Information to this TAPS notice soon.

Those of us who remember Derron from our LWMA days will remember him as being the smallest cadet on the hill.

He was named the outstanding defensive back for 1970-71. He played center guard on the 1970-71 basketball team after two previous years on the same team. His three years of LWMA baseball found him in the position of short stop. He appeared six times on the all A and A-B Dean's Lists.

Betty Heard

From: Paul Tate (PAULTATE)
Date: 9/24/2000 2:19 pm
To: ALL

I was notified early Saturday morning by friends of mine who still live in the Camp Hill and Dadeville area that Betty Heard, the mother of LWMA graduate Bucky Heard, and the wife of LWMA's long-time physician, Dr. Charner Heard, had passed away, the victim of an untimely and catastrophic stroke. She was only 58. Bucky, his brother Greg, who also attended LWMA, and his sister Dana were able to be at their mother's side and with their father in the hospital. Before she slipped away, Bucky sang for her a solo, a song that expressed his family's undying love.

As we all know, Bucky headlines one of the Branson shows which continues to have standing ovations at each performance. His wife A.J., who was with Bucky, is a choreographer and dancer for another show. I loved Bucky's philosophy when I expressed my grief at his mother's passing: "She will never miss another one of my performances now." So very true, and so very Bucky to express his own grief in such a way. Bucky has always enjoyed having his mother and father come to Branson to see his and A.J.'s performances. I know from my own experience and knowledge of Betty Heard that she will indeed make every performance. She was certainly among Bucky's fans when he performed in Lyman Ward productions and later in Auburn.

In memory of Betty Heard and in appreciation of the great life that she lived with her loving husband, Dr. Heard, and the inspiration for success and happiness in life that she gave to her three great children, all extremely talented, I shall make a contribution to the Lyman Ward Alumni Association (as opposed to LWMA itself)to be used for the Alumni Association building fund. I would encourage others who know well the contributions to the school that Dr. Heard and his family have made to Lyman Ward to do the same thing. Contributions should be to "Lyman Ward Alumni Association" and mailed directly to Dorothy Moore, Alumni Association Secretary, at P. O. Drawer 550, Camp Hill, Alabama 36850. The check should be marked as a memorial to Betty Heard.

We love you Bucky and we share your great loss.

Lillian Standfield Hancock, Class of 1939,

We just received this sad news from Stephen Shillito('93):

Hi. my name is Stephen Shillito and I attended LWMA for the 92-93 school year. I am writing on behalf of the family of Tom Garrigan, Class of 68. Tom passed away last week at the age of 49. I understand that he was a favorite among the cadets (my father, Robert Shillito, graduated with him). I am certain that his fellow alumni of Lyman Ward would want to be informed of his passing. Therefore, I have told Tom's family that I would see about getting a memorial of Tom's passing, or, at the very least, an announcement of it some where on the site. It would mean a lot to his family if you could accommodate us. Thank you for your time and please let me know if I can provide any further information.

Sincerely, Stephen Shillito

A note from: John Strunk

Mr. Shillito,

hank you very much for the sad news of Tom Garrigan's passing. I remember Tom very well, and you are certainly accurate in your statement that Tom was a great favorite with the cadets, but he was also well liked by the faculty and all who knew him. He was always smiling and full of fun. I recall that he was one of the individuals who carried his company commander's bed, with the unfortunate individual still asleep in it, out to the flag pole for reveille the last morning of classes in 1968.

Please give my best regards to your father who was my student at LWMA. He traveled with me and a group of LWMA cadets in Europe for six weeks in the summer of 1968.

Please let me join my former colleague, John Strunk, in expressing my sympathy to the John Garrigan family. Mr. Garrigan was one of my students in 1965-66 as well as Mr. Shillito. I remember both of these gentlemen well. It is always sad to hear of the death of someone in the "family of Lyman Ward." Please pass on to Mrs.. Garrigan and her family my deepest sympathy. And please give my regards to your father.

To All,

Yesterday I received a letter from Mrs. Yvonne Patterson, daughter of Mrs. Rubye Huey who replaced Mrs. Catherine Sullivan as LWMA librarian and served for many years in that position. Mrs Patterson informed me that "Miss Rubye" had passed away on 27 May 1998.

I kept in contact through the years with Miss Rubye faithfully sending her a Christmas card and telephoning her each Christmas season. She was always very alert intellectually and eager to recall memories from her tenure at LWMA. Miss Rubye was a friend to all who knew her and a kind and delightful person.

I thought that you might wish to post an message on the bulletin board about Miss Rubye's passing away.

As always,

John Strunk

Judge C.J. Coley

Long-term LWMA Trustee C.J. Coley
Dies at Age 95 on December 16

Judge C.J. Coley, who served for 43 years as an active member of Lyman Ward Military Academy's Board of Trustees, died of cardiac arrest at Russell Hospital in Alexander City on December 16.

Mr. Coley, 95, collapsed at his home about 5:30 a.m. that morning and died an hour later, his son, Jack Coley, Jr., of Alexander City, said. Mr. Coley's death was a shock to friends who said he seemed fine when they spoke to him a day earlier.

"He seemed to be doing so well," said former Alabama Gov. John Patterson, who was a longtime friend and is currently Chairman of LWMA's Board of Trustees.

Mr. Coley died less than a week after a ceremony honoring the 37 years he spent as a trustee of the State Department of Archives and History. A banker and former probate judge from Alexander City, AL, Mr. Coley was honored for his many years of service on the state archives board, from which he retired on November 6.

Mr. Coley has been widely recognized for his historical work in Alabama, particularly his efforts to designate Horseshoe Bend as a national military park. Andrew Jackson defeated the Creeks at the bend in the Tallapoosa River in 1814.

During Mr. Coley's career, he was president at Alexander City Bank and probate judge of Tallapoosa County from 1946-60, but he was best known for his love of history and his delight in telling stories about Alabama's past.

"All of his stories would have this kind of edge of humanity about them." Said Ed Bridges, director of the department of archives and history. "He would always have one, and he would always just break up the group when he would tell one."

Mr. Coley was a man who loved people and who had an irrepressible enthusiasm about work and Alabama, Dr. Bridges said.

"I think he's one of the most vital and energetic persons I have ever known," he said. Judge Patterson said Mr. Coley was a "kind, gentle, compassionate man" who devoted his entire life to public service.

"I never heard him criticize anybody or speak ill of anyone," he said. "He's one of the most remarkable men I ever knew. I admired him tremendously."

Daryl Waters, '97

IN MEMORIAM

Cadet Daryl Waters came to Lyman Ward in the fall of 1996, at the age of fifteen. He came to school with new hopes and dreams. He was ready to meet new challenges. Daryl became a unique "patch" to the quilt that made up Alpha Company as quoted by SGM Walls, his tactical officer. Though Daryl will never fulfill all his hopes and dreams, nor will he meet any future challenges, his life touched everyone here. Daryl's life reminded all of us how precious life is and how each life is a patch that precisely fits into its own place in its own time.

He will be missed.

IN MEMORIUM
ERIC FELLMAN

By: Mike Hornsby, Class of '91

Eric Brian Fellman lived in Nashville, TN, with his parents Robert and Pauline Fellman and his little sister Elise. He also had two dogs, Henrietta and Misty. He was 17 years old on Sept. 10, 1990. He was a member of the junior class and a platoon sergeant in Bravo Company. He had been a member of Bravo Company for three years and my roommate for two of them. Eric entered Lyman Ward in January of 1989. During his second year here he became guide-on, and later a squad leader; and in both positions he performed well. Eric was an effective leader and during his junior year had achieved the rank of E-7 and the position of platoon sergeant.

Eric was loved more than anyone I know. He had a loving family and plenty of friends. Eric was one of the easiest people to get along with I have ever met.

Thirteen students from Lyman Ward, including myself and my father (who was also close to Eric), attended his funeral. I'm glad we got to go because we were able to meet his friends and family and see what he was like at home. I don't think I have ever been in a place where there was more love for anyone person in my whole life. It was a beautiful ceremony, which was held March 12, 1991 in Nashville. The school and my father provided transportation for those who went, and we very much thank them for allowing us to be able to put one of the best friend's we've ever had to rest. I don't think I can ever thank them enough. Just remember: Eric Brian Fellman - We Love You!

In 1972, he established a scholarship fund for those applicants who deserved and required financial assistance. Mr. Caldwell also made the first contribution to the Dixon All Faith Chapel Building Fund. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy Caldwell, six sisters and two brothers.

(From the October 1985 Lyman Ward Sentinel.)

First Contribution
Made to Chapel Fund

Mr. John Caldwell has made the first donation to the Chapel Fund. It is appropriate that he be the first, because Mr. Caldwell was a student of Dr. Ward's some fifty years ago, it was Mr. Caldwell's responsibility to report to Dr. Ward at 6:00 A.M. each morning to carry the day's ration of sugar and butter to the dining hall. This was his job for four years. M r. Caldwell states that he was never late and neither was Dr. Ward.

The Academy is hoping that Mr. Caldwell can be back on our campus for groundbreaking ceremonies. His last visit was in June of 1972

J. Brackin Kirkland, Class of 1912,

In Memory of J. Brackin Kirkland

A tribute to the memory of J. Brackin Kirkland, president of Lyman Ward Military Academy from 1942 to 1949, has been paid by current LWMA President, Colonel Wesley P. Smith.

Mr. Kirkland passed away in late February at his retirement home in Moselle, Miss. He was 81. In his tribute Colonel Smith pointed out that LWMA had no truer friend than Mr. Kirkland, who was a graduate of the school when it was known as Southern Industrial Institute and who returned as its president when Dr. Lyman Ward stepped down. Mr. Kirkland's last visit to his alma mater was last year when he was the commencement speaker in honor of the 75th anniversary of the school.

Colonel Smith said, "Mr. Kirkland came to the Southern from his home in Ellisville, Miss. to study under Dr. Ward and his staff. Upon graduation from the Southern, he went on for his degree at Cornell University and a few years later at Dr. Ward's request, he returned to Camp Hill as president of the Southern." "When I came to Southern as a student," Colonel Smith continued, "Mr. Kirkland was my teacher and friend and he has remained in close contact with me and the school and always followed with interest the progress that has been made since Dr. Ward's days."

For more than 40 years Mr. Kirkland was actively engaged in youth education and development. In addition to his tenure at Lyman Ward, he was executive director of the George Junior Republic in Freeville, N. Y.; and also was an associate director of the Boys' Clubs of America.

The Kirklands resided at Holly-Pine Farm, Mozelle, Miss. and they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1971. Mr. Kirkland is survived by his wife Eleanor three sons and a daughter.

Daniel Vallee Football Leadership Award

"According to Colonel W. P. Smith, the Daniel Vallee Football Leadership Award has been established in memory of Daniel Vallee by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Vallee of Lake Placid, Florida. Daniel was killed in an automobile accident on March 12, 1981 while a student at LWMA.

The award will be presented at the Athletic Banquet and will go to the a member of varsity football team who has established outstanding leadership ability. Selection will be made the football coaching staff and approved by Colonel W. P. Smith."

(From the October 1984 Lyman Ward Sentinel.)

Vallee Donation to Athletic Department

In addition to the Daniel Vallee Football Leadership Award, Mr. and Mrs. Vallee have made a sizeable donation to the Athletic Department in memory of their son. Daniel, a sophomore, had been a student at Lyman Ward for four years. He and his parents were loyal and supportive to all phases of the school's program, but Daniel's greatest interest was football. It is a most fitting gesture that Mr. And Mrs. Vallee chose to honor the memory of their son in this manner. Other fine young athletes, like Daniel, will certainly benefit from their unselfishness and generosity."

IN MEMORIAM

Louise Tinsley

This issue of the SENTINEL is dedicated to In Memoriam to Louise Tinsley who has worked for Lyman Ward Military Academy for the past twenty-three years. It was a pleasure and a privilege for many of us to have known and worked with Louise. Never was the job too difficult, never were the hours too long, never was there a complaining word. She put her heart and sole into her association with the thousands of young boys who have eaten at her table for the last twenty-three years. Louise's death is not only a loss to her personal family but will be shared by the students and staff at Lyman Ward who knew her through the years.

(From the October 1977 Lyman Ward Sentinel.)

Louise Tinsley has been directly employed at Lyman Ward longer than anyone else. She is currently completing eighteen years of distinguished service as a cook in the dining hall. In eighteen years she has never missed a single day at work. All concerned with Lyman Ward have come to know and to love Louise because of her concern for doing her job well.

(From the 1971 Lyman Ward Ranger Yearbook.)

In Memory of James A. Simpson

The Honorable James A. Simpson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Lyman Ward Military Academy, died on July 9, 1972. Mr. Simpson had been on the Board since 1949 and had served as Chairman most of that time. Mr. Simpson was still practicing law with the firm he organized in 1919, Large, Simpson. Robinson and Somerville, in Birmingham. He was one of the founders of The Exchange Security Bank in Birmingham. He was a State Senator for twelve and at the time of his death he was Chairman of the State of the state Personnel Board. His civic and philanthropic interests were many.

It would not be fitting to write a memorial to Jim Simpson without revealing something of the character of the man himself. Jim was a vital man who lived every single day of his life to the fullest. He enriched his life by involving himself with people from all walks of life and through his wisdom and kindness he enriched their lives. During the funeral service, the minister had this to say about Mr. Simpson. "He was one of the rare ones, one of the exceptions to the rule, one of the breakers of the mould. For all of his eighty-three years he chose to be alive, to drink deep of the wine of human life."

Lyman Ward Military Academy was very fortunate to have had Jim Simpson at the helm for so many years.

Robert A. Russell

LWMA Trustee Dies

Mr. Robert A. Russell, a widely known industrial leader and member of the Board of Trustees of Lyman Ward Military Academy since 1954, died at his home in Alexander City Sunday morning, the 23rd of February (1969). He served as a member of the Executive Committee since 1959. In 1960, Mr. Russell was instrumental in providing funds for the rebuilding of what is now the Military Headquarters building (Russell Hall). As a result of his efforts, the school was able to take an additional forty students (in the second and third floors of Russell Hall). Without his financial assistance at this time, the school could not have achieved the growth it has shown over the years. The school has lost not only a member of the Board of Trustees, but friend who was deeply concerned as interested in the youth of this country.

NOTE 2: DATES - Where you see a date in a TAPS notice; where you just see a year, that means the last year of attendance. Where you see the words "Class of", that is the year of graduation.

NOTE 3: Not all of the older death notices are posted here. More will be added as we continue to go through the archives.

NOTE 4: This list contains TAPS notices of alumni, former faculty and staff, and friends of The Southern Industrial Institute and Lyman Ward Military Academy.

E-mail me, Brian V. Brunner '64, or DeLene Cawlay (below) the names and dates of any more that you know about who are not on this page. We will accept notices that do not have dates, because some death notices exist only in our memories. I have one or two from my time as a student that I will add later from memory.
