I'd like to offer my condolences to Vince and Glenn. I was very much saddened to hear of your dad's passing. He was a very important part of my youth. Most of my pleasant childhood memories center around Troop 259, countless camping trips, hikes and one of my earliest cave trips. His positive influences on my life cannot be overstated. I always felt as if I had a second dad.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My sincere condolences to you Vince and Glen. The time your dad invested in Scouting was invaluable to me growing up. I have always been grateful for the time he and all those other leaders spent to make it possible for all of us to experience camping and self reliance. Thanks to your dad I became an Eagle Scout and later started a troop in our home town that I patterned extensively on his model. In a way extending his influence to another generation. Both of my sons achieved Eagle Scout as well and largely the credit goes to your dad. Thank you Mr. Akers, you are still a hero to many of us.

Mr Akers was always a very cool father figure. Lots of found memories from Boys Scouts and growing up with Vince on Fry Road and hanging around his home with his Mom and Dad. Love to you guys. Your friend David.
