  3. To The Family of Mr.Kuhn, you all have my deepest condolences.He was my Drafting Teacher in the early sixties at Wilcox, who instilled a sense of precision,accuracy,neatness and effciency that are still with me today. He conveyed this not only in teachings but as an example of high work ethic with himself. He gave many of his students and myself the solid foundation for a successful career. To this I thank him. May God rest his soul.
