Kirchoff, Lawrence  
1932 - 2015 Larry was born in Lemmon South Dakota to Lawrence and Gertrude Kirchoff. He spent a happy childhood on the Plains with a fishing pole in one hand and a trombone in the other. After graduating from Lemmon High School as a star athlete and Salutatorian, he received a degree in Business from Saint Thomas College in Minneapolis through the R.O.T.C. program. As Lieutenant Kirchoff in the United States Air Force he was first posted to Burtonwood Air Force Base in England. Here he met and married Rita McCabe. In the course of a distinguished 23-year Air Force career Larry became a Master's level Electrical Engineer. He went on to serve in the Defense Intelligence Agency, retiring as Lieutenant Colonel in 1977. During this time Larry and Rita had three children; Paul, Karen (Lichtenberger) and Laura (Seiler). Now there are also three grandchildren; Geoff, Courtney and Kristin and two great-grandchildren. After retiring from the Air Force Larry worked as an Electrical Engineer in aerospace for a time in California but soon gave that up, once more picking up his trombone and also returning to school to follow his impulse to be of service to others. He and Rita separated and subsequently divorced. Larry entered Antioch College to pursue an M.A. in Psychology and a California MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist) license. Later he met and married Patricia Ross, who coincidentally had been following the same course of study at UCSB. The next twenty years were joyful times of fitting in two similar careers, travel, volunteer work, family gatherings and performances of Larry's jazz band, The Nighthawks. Larry was a loving stepfather to Pat's two sons Jim and David Lemon and they in turn loved him deeply. Around the Central Coast of California Larry was known as "the old jazz Master." His work as a Therapist specializing in chemical dependencies was of immeasurable help to his many clients. Larry, with his remarkable blend of strength, talent and compassion, was loved by all who knew him. It was not until 2005, when Larry and Pat moved to Springfield Oregon that signs of the tragedy ahead began to show. Now, after a long and courageous struggle, Larry has been taken from us by the sad scourge of Alzheimer's disease. We will always miss him and remember him with the love and joy that were his trademarks. He was well described as "the finest man I ever knew." A memorial will be held at 1:00 P.M. on May 27 at Saint Paul's Catholic Church in Eugene with a reception following at the church.

Leser, Frederick A.  
November 6, 1923 - May 18, 2015 Frederick Aloise Leser was born on November 6, 1923, in Germantown, PA, to Caroline Hess Leser and Frederick Leser Sr. Fred attended Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, D.C. and then spent his freshman year at the University of Texas where he played on the offensive line for the Longhorns in 1941. He left Texas to join the Army Signal Corps in 1942 and was stationed in Neuendettelsau, Germany, a town he returned to later in life. After the war he finished his electrical engineering degree at Penn State. Fred spent the majority of his career with National Linen Company. He lived primarily in Atlanta, but also lived in Cherry Hill, NJ, St. Louis, and Chicago (3 times). Retirement years were spent in Marietta, GA, where he was a member of the Indian Hills Country Club and Trinity Presbyterian Church. An avid golfer, one of the highlights of his life was playing in a tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club where he won first place and low net. He remembered every detail of the Augusta course from that time on. Fred also played in 33 Georgia Senior golf tournaments after he retired. Retirement also brought many wonderful trips on river cruises throughout Europe and a trip to Australia and New Zealand. After moving to Eugene in 2007 to be closer to his daughter and stepdaughters, Fred enjoyed many years playing bridge at the Green House, Emerald Bridge Club, and with the Grumpy Old Men. He was an ice hockey fanatic, spending hours a day in his Eugene home watching the hockey channel and cheering primarily for the Atlanta/Winnipeg Thrashers. We salute Fred, a devoted family man, proud Army veteran, avid golfer and amateur radio enthusiast, for a life well lived. His callsign, K7FAL, is now a silent key.
