Wide and deep impact

It is difficult to narrow memories with Del to just one or two since we have known and worked together for many years. My time with BSA is marked with associations with many great and generous people–I know them as Scouters. They are generous with their time, talent and treasure and follow role models like Del Loder. In his later years, I would see Del at monthly Camp Parsons alumni meetings held at the Scout office. These were wonderful times to catch up with Del and his friends, talk about Scouting, reminisce about days gone by and discuss the future of our great movement. Del offered me sound advice, suggestions, and most importantly, encouraging words. I think about Del often and the impact he made on so many Scouts, Scouters and Scout Executives.
