Known in Kathmandu!

Tina King Leitzel, I didn’t really know your dad very well but I wanted to share this with you. Over 2 years ago, I was in Kathmandu Nepal, sitting in a coffee shop speaking with the owner who is an American.  He has lived his adult life in Nepal. He went to Penn State in the 70’s and learned to know your dad during that time. He spoke very highly of your dad and was pleased that I knew of him and that he was still living at that time. 
Thought you would like to know your dad was spoken of fondly all the way around the world in Kathmandu!

I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have known such a thoughtful and talented man. Growing up, I remember we went to the school where he was teaching and were playing on scooters. I had put the antique signet ring my Grandmother had given me on the heater so nothing would happen to it. Being a typical, forgetful 12 year old girl, I forgot to put it back on before we left. Your Dad tracked it down and returned it to me! Thanks to your Dad, I have worn that ring for many years and have it to pass down to my granddaughter! I hope you and your family find comfort in the wonderful memories you have shared. Heaven has certainly gotten one very special angel! You and your faare in my thoughts and prayers ❤️
