My father, Walter Korzep passed away tonight at age 85, succumbing to the ravages of Parkinsons and ultimately renal failure. He passed away peacefully with my mother by his side.

He served with the 168th regiment of the 34th Division as an infantryman during WWII being with the first troops that landed in North Africa. He fought at Kasserine Pass, Hill 609, Monte Casino and Anzio. He earned two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts.

Dad was a person of few words who taught me how to be a man by deed rather than discourse. He was an honorable man who had just celebrated his 60th wedding anniversary. A man who showed me that you could not only turn plowshares into swords but swords back into plowshares. I hope to be half the man he was.

My dad was always my hero and the world is a lesser place at his passing.

...yet a better place since he walked upon it!

Memories are forever,
