Time keeps speeding by and sometimes seems way too short, especially when we lose someone near and dear to us. In keeping with our long-standing tradition here on the Pasty Cam, we pause on the last day of the month to remember those who have left us too soon. Today we remember:

Dave "Chizza" Ahonen
Margaret Bouwkamp
Mary Ellen Carroll
Arthur "Art" Chaput
Renate Derrick
Kenneth Fisher
Keith Guzek
Wilbert "Bert" Kesanen
Tony P. Ozanich
Greg Magnuson
Servicemen and women who have given their all

All of us here at Pasty Central extend our heartfelt sympathy to those who have lost someone cherished in their lives.

Of special note in the list above, is the passing of Arthur "Art" Chaput. He was the co-sculptor of the Bishop Baraga Shrine overlooking Keweenaw Bay between Baraga and L'Anse, so it was perfectly fitting to feature this beautiful sunset photo taken by Nancy Haun, President of the Bishop Baraga Foundation.

Although you can't be here with me, we're truly not apart,
Until the final breath I take, you'll be living in my heart.

Condolences to all.
I was just wondering, is Art related to Ed Chaput?

Mary says: Yes, Alex. Art and Ed were brothers.

In memory of George "Black Bart" Foster, Central Location's own Keweenaw character.

The Gals from Kalamazoo miss you. Thanks for watching over us all those years, you old softie.

It is with great sadness that I must inform all of you that Nathalie's (DrNat) mom, Renate Derrick, passed away earlier this morning after a long battle with cancer. She fought it as hard as she could, but she is in a much better place now. Please pray for Nathalie and her Father in this time of need....

Mary says: Our deepest sympathy to you all, Paul and I will keep them in my prayers. I've added her mom's name to the list in my notes above. RIP...

My sympathies Dr. Nat and Capt. Paul.

“But your dead will live; their bodies will rise. Those who live in the dust will wake up and shout for joy! For your dew is like the dew of dawn, and the earth will give birth to the dead"
Isaiah 26:19

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Friday, June 30, 2017 - 12:56 pm:

So very sorry to hear of Renate's passing. My sympathy to your whole family as you mourn her passing. May our Lord comfort you.

Great verse Alex!

Not to take away from remembering those that have gone on before us, but relevant to the Bishop Baraga sunset photo, the President of the Bishop Baraga Foundation has a post on her Facebook page about selling today's photo and another to raise funds to light up the statue as it once was.
This link has info how to order them or donate: Nancy Haun on Facebook

Remembering my cousin Harold from Michigan who just passed away from cancer June 1, 2017. He was a hard worker, a Viet Nam vet and a great guy. He will always be missed.

Remembering Joyce Hendrickson from Munising. Her husband Martin, says there will be a memorial service for her at Bay Furnace Park near Christmas, MI on July 9. They were married over 60 yrs. They attended many of the Kilpela and Friends dances over the years. We will miss her.
Such a nice couple.

So sorry for your lost, Nat! Hugs to you!

I would like to mention the loss of Rev. Gerdeau formerly of Trinity Episcopal Church in Houghton. He presided at my mother's funeral in 1974. He had a brilliant mind. I remember him talking to my father, Wally , and explaining to him why a private ceremony for Lynn was not a good idea. He laid out the reasons so simply and logically my dad had to agree to have a public funeral. Rev Gerdeau was from New York and passed away there. but he served such small parishes as Sidnaw. He truly served the church. In New York he was an assistant to the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. That was his true calling I believe. Let Jesus guide you now ,Paul.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Saturday, July 1, 2017 - 04:17 pm:

I am very sorry for your loss Dr. Nat. You, the Capt and your father
are in my prayers.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Sunday, July 2, 2017 - 07:49 am:

In memory of my K-9 boxer Matty, who died 10 years ago in June.
