Mrs. Derwinski & family,
I just now learned of Mr. Derwinski's passing. His integrity and personal commitment to people and society live on. My dad (Roy Benson, RIP 2006) treasured his lively conversation and good advice. His appointing me to the Naval Academy made a big difference in my life. I especially recall his support for his boys at the academy, far from home. I wish I could thank him once again for his good work for our community and for the US.
