J. Arlen Ecker

West Point, 1989

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Don Thompson on November 22, 2010:

I was an old classmate of Arlen's at Memorial School and Wilbraham Junior High. While we were not best of friends in high school, Arlen was friendly and treated me well despite being the new kid in school. He loved to play practical jokes and often got caught in his mischeivous pranks..I won't tell about the 7th grade French Class here. Anyway -I looked up Arlen over the years and was pleased he joined the military. I would have liked to keep in touch with him but I didn't and for that I regret it. Anyway -you turned out good Arlen! I am proud to have called you a friend and will see you in Heaven...without the thumbtacks of course.
