Justin C. Palrang Aug. 11, 1940 - Dec. 29, 2013 I was taken aback to wake up dead this morning. I knew it would be soon, but not today. For those of you who feel you never got to know me, it was probably because I kept changing my name. I was born Regis Maurice Palrang. I was called Butch until I became David Michael in 1963. I end my life as Justin Christopher. David received his medical degree from the Univ. of Nebraska in 1965, and served in the U. S. Air Force. I got my greatest personal satisfaction from making a good recording - of anything! I especially enjoyed taping theatrical productions. In particular, I want to thank my friend Phil Grecian and the directors of the KAREN HASTING PLAYERS, Topeka High School, Lawrence Comm. Theatre, the Columbian Theatre in Wamego, and especially Terrence McKerr and his Pub Theatre. My favorite entertainer to tape was The Voice, Teri Walton. You know, I have climbed the Great Pyramid, clambered Machu Picchu, and lain in King Khufu's cramped sarcophagus, but I never did see a ghost! The cause of my death was Pulmonary Fibrosis. I plan to be cremated. My last statement is...I have never been happier in my life! I am survived by my brother, Dr. Arthur Palrang, his wife Dee, and their three children. Justin C. Palrang
