Edwin Gilbert Northup

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Joe Berenato on April 9, 2007:

North was always easy to be around. He was a good friend and sounding board, always able to help you figure out a supposedly complex problem with a straightforward, simple answer. Always on an even keel, he rarely got upset. I think it was because he held firmly to a tight set of personal values and if these were not challenged, then apparently tumultous events really did not bother him at all. On the surface understated, North held strongly to his friends and loved ones--Be thou at Peace.
