William Mabb…recipient of honor
In the midst of an “operation,” so serious
the next of kin had to be rushed to the “patient’s” side, news of William Mabb
receiving an Honorary Life Membership from the Longden PTA was revealed during
the annual Fathers’ Night show.
“Dr. Gililespie” (Lack Littler), aided by
“Dr. Kildare” (Ben Parker), said: “I
certainly hope I can save the patient since he has done so much service to the
community and would be ‘sorely’ missed.”
“He’s been Longden PTA’s fathers’
committee chairman two different times, an annual performer in the fathers’
show, and a carnival helper for many years.”
“He’s been Cubmaster of Madison School,
Pact 265, and Webelos chairman of Longden Pack 156,” the doctor continued.
Mabb’s been active in Little League for
six years, serving as manager, umpire, concession stand chairman, and is now
players’ agent, in spite of the fact his boys are too old for the program.
In DeMolay, he’d been chapter dad and
athletic director. He has just helped
construct a float for his daughter’s Brownie troop.
“Yes, he’d certainly be missed.”
With that final pronouncement, Mabb was
presented his Honorary Life Membership pin and then helped to his feet from the
operating table to receive congratulations from his family.
Mabb and his wife, Mildred, live at 6213
. They have three children, Norman, senior at
; Wayne, a freshman;
third grade at
. They have lived in
for 7 years.
