I’m so sorry to hear of Archie’s passing. He was a good man, and came from a good family. My wife Nancy and I extend our deepest sympathies to Archie’s family. Archie’s Dad and my Dad were very close friends, and shared a bond of both being Foremen at New Departure. Occasionally my Dad would bring me on family visits. If my memory is correct, our family attended Archie’s wedding, in the 50’s. It was a pleasure to know Archie - May he Rest In Peace.
