My sympathy to your family. My Dad worked at RTI for many years and any time he was going to the terminal that I could tag along, I eagerly did. Usually I would play in the shop and get grimy. Ike was always very kind to me and I will remember him fondly.

Ike was a very special man! He certainly loved his music and dancing. I met him for the first time at the Ste. Marie dance. After that I saw him at Newton, Olney, and Greenup dances also. I always enjoyed seeing him and giving him a big hug. I think he enjoyed it as much as I did. I'm so sorry I am in Florida and can't be there to give you my condolences. I am praying for you! With love and prayers! Eileen Hartrich
