John Elwin Rountree

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Gordy Schnabel on October 26, 2011:

To John and His family:
You were one of the nicest upperclassmen to the A-4 Class of '71. As a squad leader and then company commander during Firstie year, you always treated us fairly and compassionately, which was not always the way back then. A true leader and wonderful man, I only have fond memories of you. The last time Debbie and I were with you was in 1984 when we came out to the A/N Game in Pasadena. You were nice enough to let Debbie and me join your family for Thanksgiving dinner. You will be missed. Our prayers are with you and your family. Be thou at peace!

Gordy and Debbie Schnabel
