(Budd) and Agnes Franklin Flowers. The family moved to Calhan, CO in 1936 to be near a high school. Lyle attended grade school in Calhan, and junior and senior high schools in Denver, CO. Lyle's father had a farm sale, sold everything and moved his family to Denver in l944 where his three older sisters had settled after finishing college and were living with an aunt and uncle. Lyle never graduated from high school but worked a year in the Denver area and then joined the Army in November, 1947. He completed a GED series and Basic Training at Fort Ord, CA and received his high school equivalency certificate. He spent more than seven years with the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, NC as a Motor Sgt. and Chief Mechanic and after a tour in Korea, decided to change careers and go into aviation. Lyle spent a second tour in Korea with the 13th Transportation Company, Light Helicopter, as a Crew Chief. He served two tours each in Korea, Vietnam and Alaska. Between his two tours in Vietnam, Lyle was an instructor in helicopter maintenance at Fort Eustis, VA. His career in aviation was spent with the 33rd Transportation Co, Fort Riley, KS and Fort Ord, CA; 13th Transportation Co, Korea; U.S. Army Transportation School, Fort Eustis, VA; 80th Transportation Co, Fort Richardson, AK; 8th Transportation Co, Fort Bragg, NC and Vietnam; 14th Transportation Battalion, Nha Trang, South Vietnam; 604th Transportation Co, Plakieu, South Vietnam; and 568th Transportation Co, Fort Wainwright, AK where he retired as shop foreman in 1968 with 21 years military service. The 568th was a General Support Maintenance Company that serviced all of Alaska's Army Aircraft. Lyle deployed with the 8th Transportation Co. and its maintenance detachment in November, 1961, and was one of the first three helicopter companies to arrive in Saigon, South Vietnam on December 11, 1961. They built their camp from scratch at Quin-yhon. Lyle truly loved army aviation and became qualified to fly in several different aircraft. Always with a rated pilot, Lyle accumulated nearly 200 combat support hours doing rescue and recovery missions during his tours in Vietnam where he earned the Air Medal with seven Oak Leaf Clusters. Through a military friend, Lyle met and married Shirley Ann Moorehouse in Kansas City, MO on November 3, 1952. They celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary only a month before Shirley passed away on December 12, 1987, losing her battle with Cancer & brain tumors. During his service, Lyle received the following medals and awards: the Army Commendation Medal, Korea Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal with Device, Vietnam Service Medal with three Bronze Service Stars, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, 5 Good Conduct Medals, 2 Purple Hearts, National Defense Service Medal, Air Medal with seven OLC, Senior Aviator Flight Wings, Senior Parachute Wings, Glider Wings, Expert Marksman Qualification Badge on the M-1 carbine, M-1 rifle and 45 cal. handgun and U.S. Army Transportation School Instructor Qualification Certificates. Following his retirement from the U.S. Army, Lyle worked for the U.S. Postal Service in Fairbanks, AK for 16 years. His service with the postal service started as a substitute carrier and ended as Postal Operations Specialist Senior. He also worked as Tour Supervisor, Mail Processing Supervisor, Customer Service Supervisor and as Acting Postmaster. On June 29, 1984, Lyle combined his postal service with his military service for one civil service retirement of 37 years. While working with the postal service, Lyle completed a ground school course and flight training and became qualified in small, single engine aircraft. He went on to qualify in the twin engine Piper Seneca and was instrument rated. In June 1985, Lyle, Shirley and their youngest daughter, Shannon moved to Albuquerque, NM where their oldest daughter Teresa was living. Lyle worked at First Interstate Bank in the vault sorting and wrapping coins and verifying currency until the bank sold in 1991. He then worked for himself doing yard maintenance and installing sprinkler systems. In 1991 he met Bonnie Lee (Jackson) Bassham and nearly two years later, on May 22, 1993, Lyle and Bonnie were married in his daughter Teresa's back yard. He took Bonnie to Alaska on their honeymoon where Lyle's second daughter, Danita, still lives in Fairbanks with her husband, Lloyd. Lyle and Bonnie have done much traveling with their fifth wheel camper and then the motor homes before Lyle retired from driving the "big rigs" at age 80.

BREGMAN, STANLEY IRWIN A Washington lawyer who was a close confidante to both Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Vice President Walter Mondale, died on May 8, 2014 in Santa Monica, California, at the age of 83. Mr. Bregman was born on March 20, 1931, in Washington, D. C. as the son of Bo and Sadie Bregman, who were Russian Jewish immigrants. His career in law and politics began when he was elected President of the Young Democrats of America during the Stevenson-Kefauver campaign. During Humphrey's failed attempt to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 1960 at the Convention held in Chicago, Bregman worked the floor to round up votes for Humphrey. Subsequently, he was an advance man for candidate Lyndon Johnson during the 1960 general election. Bregman graduated from George Washington University and G.W. Law School after having proudly served in the United States Coast Guard. In 1965, he formed a Washington law firm with the nephew of the Speaker of the House, Edward McCormick. Specializing in governmental relations, the firm represented numerous Fortune Five Hundred Companies. One of the clients he most proudly represented was the Washington Senators baseball team. While representing Robert Short of Minneapolis, he negotiated the purchase of the team and later the hiring of Ted Williams as General Manager. In 1969 the law firm was restructured as Bregman, Abell, and Kay. The second named partner, Tyler Abell, had held high-level positions in the Johnson Administration in the Postmaster General's office and as Chief of Protocol in the Department of State. Mr. Bregman's enthusiasm for baseball and politics was inherited by his sons, Benjamin and Samuel, both of whom played baseball for the Lobos at the University of New Mexico. His grandson, Alex Bregman, is now the shortstop for the Louisiana State University baseball team and was the national Freshman of the year in 2013. He wed Sandra Kneifl in 1957 and they were married for thirty-five years.
