IN THE NEWS:
FUNERAL FOR Pfc. LEO DUQUETTE:
Army Pfc. Duquette, a recent graduate of Waite High School, was 18 when he enlisted in the U.S. Army. In 1950 he was sent to Korea where he was almost immediately engaged in combat with North Korean forces near Choch’iwon, South Korea in July of that year.
After the encounters, he could not be accounted for and was declared MIA. He was declared dead in 1953.
After a long journey and much help from the U.S. government, he’s back home and will be buried December 15, 2019 at the Lake Township Cemetery.
His nephew, Andrew Tepper, whom Leo never knew, works for the City as our tax auditor. God Bless.
