I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Chapman when I was a finalist in the American Legion Oratorical Contest while a High School student. Bill and his wife Lupe were genuine, and fun-loving people. They were supportive of my efforts and even came out to support me at the competition when it moved from San Bernardino to Redlands. Folks like Bill and his wife Lupe were a part of the greatest generation and I was lucky to learn first-hand from their kindness why. God bless their family and my sincere sorrow for your loss.
