April 22 - Scouter Gone Home

Dear Scouters,

It is with great sorrow and sad duty that I inform that Scouter Kevin Krafve died of a heart attack this morning 22 April, 2014. Kevin was the Cubmaster of Pack 22.

Our community has lost a great citizen, Scouting has lost an impassioned Scouter and the boys and families in Pack 22 have lost a great role model and leader.

Funeral arrangements are not available at this time. As soon as I receive the details I will forward them to you.

I ask that each of you keep Kevin's family in your prayers during this most difficult time.
