Such a wonderful and heartfelt tribute to someone who was obviously loved as much as he loved life. <3

Harry, I am just checking in. The damned Day Light Savings Time is coming up again but I have no hope that this Trump Bunch will do anything to get rid of it. Rest in Peace, my friend.

I was one of the few, of the thousands of students, who had the good fortune to take Mr. Stamps history course in the 1970s at MGCCC. It was one of the most memorable college courses I have ever taken. Who can forget the thunderious portrayal of characters in history in the booming voice of Mr. Stamps standing on a table mounted with his armor plated lectern. I'll never forget the speech he gave on the day he forgot about being on the table, and stepped back from his lecture.

The noise was so loud, teachers from two other classes rushed in, assuming that Mr. Stamps either had been assaulted by a student who disagreed with him, or somebody had planted a bomb.

With a horrified look on her face, I clearly remember a teacher asking Mr. Stamps if he wanted her to call an ambulance.

In his clear and determined voice, I heard him say, "Never! History has no time to wait, history marches on".

With that, he continued his rousing rendition of his history lesson. As we were helping him up from the floor, I noticed he didn't ask for his lectern to be placed back on the table. Throughout the entire rest of the course, the lectern never made it back to the table again.

However, we students were so appreciative of the lessons he taught, we all chipped in at the end of the course, and bought him another table. Just to be sure, we had the carpentry shop reduce the height of the table from 3 feet down to 6 inches.

Since Mr. Stamps was well known to totally use the assets he was given to teach his love of history, it was no surprise to see his lectern returned to its rightful place in the middle of the table at the start of the next semester. Only this time, the table was 6 inches high.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Stamps, you've earned your place in history!
