Jerry is the major reason I came to Western. Probably a good choice from my standpoint. When people complained about the smells from the parts of animals I tried to salvage, Jerry just laughed and said he had done similar things. I wonder what has happened to all the skeletal material we have left behind at Western?

I remember during Viet Nam a bunch of students had a sit-in in the president's (Dr. Flora's) office at Western. Rather than going Schwarzenegger on them, he brought in burgers and Cokes from Herfy's and joined the kids. He was a heckuva guy.

Chris, you have large boots to fill. Maybe Ted can help you with that! A few years back, I chatted with your Dad at the Squalicum harbor boathouse, at his former colleague's memorial, just after he eloquently and humorously spoke at the podium. The memorial was for Loren Webb, who also was an old friend of mine... I asked your Dad how you were doing with the home you were building and he said, " Chris is doing well but, has not finished his project, yet." Well, I say we all need some unfinished projects and lots of irons in the fire! It keeps the wheels turning and the fires burning as we follow the paths of our parents, teachers, and our own spirit!

ahoy!

I had several courses at Western with Dr. Flora, and they were a gift. He was a wonderful teacher and a terrific person. He was kind enough to invite several of us to his home for dinner - something a college kid doesn't forget. And, god almighty, that man could talk loud! He will be terribly missed.

Dr. Flora was my absolute favorite professor. A very fun and wonderful man.

I remember Mr. Flora from Tidepool Critters in my youth, from my years of study at WWSC, and as local weatherman. He was a good man and the world is better for his having stopped in.

His wealth of knowledge was spread in his cheer to any and every stranger. I am blessed to have known him and will cherish his wise words for the remainder of my life.

He was truly an exceptional person! If his example were followed by more people, our world would be a better place!
