Obituary………………….
Captain Roger David Albertson, 83, Lake City, TX and Colfax, WI successfully completed a final “gentle landing” on April 18, 2020 as he passed from this life to Heaven where he gets to be with Jesus forever.  He was in his Colfax home, surrounded by his loving family.

Roger was born April 4, 1937 in Winona, MN, attended country grade school in Bennett Valley (Buffalo Co, WI), spent two years at Eleva-Strum High School, and graduated from Eau Claire High School in 1955. On June 5, 1959, Roger married his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Joan Christine Litsheim of Eau Claire, WI.  Two days later, he graduated from St. Olaf College with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Air Science.  That same day, he was also commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in the United States Air Force.  Upon completion of his pilot training in T-34, T-37, and T-33 aircraft he flew KC-97 and KC-135 air-refueling aircraft based from Lincoln, NE, Wichita Falls, TX, and Portsmouth, NH from 1961- 1967.  Although Roger decided to leave the Air Force to provide a more stable environment to raise his family, his great love of country never left him and he raised his children to appreciate what it means to be an American and never take their freedoms for granted.  Roger was hired as a pilot by Northwest Airlines in March 1967 and flew Boeing 727, Boeing 707, Boeing 757, and Boeing 747’s.  He enjoyed a successful career with Northwest and retired in 1996 as a Boeing 747 Captain based out of Honolulu. HI.

Roger was an active member of Zion Lutheran Church, Cottage Grove, MN for many years, sang in the choir, and served on several committees, including Church Council President.  He had a beautiful voice and sang in the St. Paul Chapter Barbershop Chorus.  Roger enjoyed his family, his flying, and his hobbies of woodworking, home remodeling (including designing and building a 2-story solid oak spiral staircase), wood carving, hobby farming, reading, playing cards, and traveling.  Living on Lake Corpus Christi with his wife of over 60 years, he enjoyed watching the sunsets both at home and during their travels.  We remember he would often plan the day in a way to make sure we were in the “perfect” spot to “catch the sunset”.

Roger is survived by his wife, Joan, sons Scott David (Janna) Albertson of Stillwater, MN, Derik Jon Albertson of Dallas, TX, Brent Steven (Mary) Albertson of Afton, MN , and daughter Sue Marie (Scott) Enervold of La Crosse, WI.  Grandchildren: Jessica Lynn (Matt) Howe, Jake Lewis and Beth Marie Albertson, Afton Christine and Anja Marie Enervold.  Great grandchildren: Dante (Megan) Carlson, Matthew and Jack Howe.  He is also survived by his sister, Ardelle Williamson, six nephews, two nieces, and many grand and great nieces and nephews.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Orvin and Arleen Albertson and his brother, Sam.

Roger’s warm, generous spirit will be dearly missed by all who knew him.  Thank you to all of our family and friends for your support.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the American Cancer Society and Saving Grace Lutheran Church - Eau Claire.  A Celebration of life will be held later with a burial at the Little Dane Church in St. Onge, SD.

Chippewa Valley Cremation Services - Celebration of Life Center is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences can be left at www.chippewavalleycremation.com

Obituary……………..Thomas LeBoutillier, Jr. of Roswell, GA, age 77, joyfully joined his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in eternity on April 10, 2020.
Tom was born on September 8, 1942 in New York City to Thomas LeBoutillier Sr. and Ann Foster LeBoutillier.

Tom graduated from Avon Old Farms Preparatory School in Avon, CT. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 1964. He attended graduate school at the University of Missouri and the University of Houston.

Tom began his flying career with Delta Air Lines in Houston, TX in 1970 and rose through the ranks to Captain and Flight Instructor before retiring in 2002. While flying out of Houston Tom attended Dallas Theological Seminary for five years and received his Master of Arts in Biblical Studies degree in 1986. In 1987 he accepted an invitation to teach at Delta’s Flight Training Department in Atlanta.

On a church trip to Israel in 1991, he met his remarkable wife Bonnie, and they enjoyed 28 years together before his passing. After his retirement Tom enjoyed spending quality time with his family as a full-time stay-at-home dad, volunteering at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church and his son’s schools, playing tennis and cheering for Roger Federer, going on fishing trips with friends, traveling, growing tomatoes, and embracing his passion for photography.

Tom is preceded in death by his father Thomas LeBoutillier, Sr., mother Ann Foster LeBoutillier, step-mother Pamela Tower LeBoutillier, brother David LeBoutillier, and half-sister Pamela LeBoutillier Miles.

Tom summed up his life in this one statement: “My greatest love came to me on February 8, 1979 when I reached out to God with a contrite heart and found the love and forgiveness we all desire. Since that fateful encounter the blessings I have received are too numerous for words. God is truly great!” Because of the threat of COVID-19 and its impact, a private graveside service will be held. The family will host a memorial service for a broader audience at a later date.

Obituary……………. Thomas E. Kana passed away peacefully on March 27, 2020 at the St. Francis Medical Center in Colorado Springs, CO. He was 64. Tom was born at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady, NY on December 31, 1955 the son of the late Doreen C. Kana and Charles H. Kana of Coburg Village, Rexford, NY.
Tom's family lived in Glenville and Tom's education was in the Burnt Hills Ballston Lake School District. Tom graduated in the Class of 1974. He was a member of the National Honor Society and played varsity football and baseball. Tom also played in the Connie Mack Baseball League. He served as an altar boy at the Church of the lmmaculate Conception and was also a Gazette delivery boy. ln addition to Tom's love for baseball he treasured those times on Lake George boating and island tenting with his family. Along with his two brothers they took pleasure in helping their Grandfather perform the routine maintenance tasks at "The Camp" at Hulett's Landing, NY.
While pursuing his professional career Tom always cherished those rare occasions when he could return to Camp for a few days. ln the Spring of L974 Tom received an appointment to the Air Force Academy from the late Representative Sam Stratton. Tom entered the Academy in June of 1974 and graduated with honors in the Class of 1978 and was a proud member of the baseball team. Tom's basic pilot's training was at Laughlin AFB in Del Rio, TX. His career path took him to Minot, ND flying B-52's and then to Pease AFB in New Hampshire flying FB-111's. Each of these assignments were with SAC during the Cold War Era. At this point in Tom's career he had achieved the rank of Command Pilot.
On April 16, 1983 Tom married Susan K. Stanton, a resident of Annapolis, MD. Arrangements were made to have the wedding ceremony performed at the Naval Academy Chapel, and for one half hour on the 16th, the Chapel was under siege by former Air Force Academy cadets. A wonderful reception followed and then it was back to Minot, ND.
ln March 1987 Tom was selected for training at Test Pilot School in Edward's Air Force Base in California. He graduated in the summer of 1988. He then spent one additional year as an instructor and advisor on the B-2 Stealth bomber Project. During the initial aerial refueling of the B-2 Tom was the pilot of the KC-10 tanker. His next assignment was at the Air Force Academy as an instructor in Aeronautical Engineering.
After sixteen years in the Air Force Tom decided to exercise an option for early retirement. Soon after he accepted a position with Twentieth Century lnvestments in Kansas City, MO as Director of corporate flight operations. He held this position for five years and then sought out his dream of flying commercially. In December 1999 he began with Delta Air Lines which continued for fifteen years. At the time of his retirement he was First Officer on 757's and 767' s flying out of LAX. Tom seldom had any idle moments. He and Sue enjoyed their large acreage in Monument, CO. Tom was a certified SCUBA diver and had climbed several of the high peaks in Colorado. He enjoyed the game of golf and tooling around on his John Deere lawn mower. Tom and his family took several cruises with his in-laws and parents to Alaska, the Mediterranean, The Scandinavian Countries and the Caribbean. Who could forget Tom's love and compassion for his two big dogs Abby and Homer. Tom's foremost passion was reading. He was seldom without a book and sometimes as many as three. Tom was a true patriot, a scholar, an academic and oh yes, a baseball player.
ln addition to his father, Tom is survived by his wife Susan of Colorado Springs, his daughters; Laura of Colorado Springs, daughter Jillian of Lakewood, CO. his two brothers Dr. Daniel Kana of Bedford, NH, Dr. Stephen Kana of Spartanburg, SC, his sister Kathleen Lombardo of Newtown Square, PA. and several nephews and nieces.

Obituary……………….DALE L. KURTZ
On Thursday, April 9 2020, Dale L. Kurtz of Bethlehem Connecticut passed away unexpectedly at the age 79 at St. Marys Hospital.

Dale was born to Cyrus and Genevieve Kurtz of Rhinebeck, New York. Upon graduation from Rhinebeck High School, he married his high school sweetheart Patricia Ann (Taylor) Kurtz and attended Farmington State College earning a certificate in Airframe and Powerplant. Together, Pat and Dale raised three children, Jennifer, Kenneth and Russell. Dale loved his family dearly and spent many hours with his children and extended family. He believed in service to others and was extremely generous with his time and resources. He was a life-long leader and volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America. After earning the rank of Eagle Scout at an early age, he went on to inspire 9 other family members to attain the achievement with many becoming Scoutmasters and performing other essential leadership roles. For his work, he was awarded the Silver Beaver, given only to a select number of scouts of exceptional character who have provided distinguished service.

Beyond his family and service to others, flying was Dale’s true love and he flourished in the field. He started with Pan American Airlines in 1960 cleaning aircraft between flights, but quickly worked his way up, becoming a certified mechanic, quality inspector, and later, after many hours of private lessons earned the rating of Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor. Rehired by Pan Am as flight crew, he started out as a navigator and held positions as flight engineer, first officer and check pilot. He ultimately retired as a Captain with Delta Airlines accumulating more than 30,000 flight hours. Over the years, he flew many aircraft such as the 707, DC-9, L-1011, 727, 737, 747, MD80 and A310, as well as many civil aviation craft. After his retirement in 2002, he dedicated his time to his church serving as the building coordinator overseeing many major upgrades and to the Town of Bethlehem serving on the Inland/Wetlands committee.

Dale is survived by his loving wife and three children (Jennifer Clogston of Pike NH, Kenneth of Owasso OK, and Russell of Lebanon OH), their spouses, 12 grandchildren, his brother (Bruce of Longmeadow MA), a step brother and a step sister.

Due to the on-going pandemic, no services are scheduled at this time, but a memorial service is being planned for later this summer. In lieu of flowers, please contribute in Dale’s name to your preferred place of worship. O’Neill Funeral Home 742 Main St Oakville has been honored to assist the Kurtz family during this difficult time. Memories endure only if you share them, so you are encouraged to leave a condolence, words of comfort or a personal memory with the Kurtz family on Dale’s tribute page at www.oneillfuneralhome.com
