Col. Colin F. Burch, Jr., 1918-2008

My grandfather died this morning. He was 89. I had just seen him this past weekend; he had been groggy and couldn't say a lot.

He was a flight instructor in WWII, and an engineer on the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System. He also served in the Korean War, and retired a full-bird Colonel.

I really loved him; I'll really miss him.
