APYC History - Volume 6

In 1988 Ken Alkire became the new commodore. I remember Ken as a big gentle man who was very proud of having served as the club's commodore. Commodore Alkire died peacefully at his home on Feb.21,2005 after a short illness. He was remembered for his leadership skill, and for organizing events to benefit his community. Commodore Alkire was survived by Lady Francis, 4 children, and 11 grandchildren.
