Earl Robert Kelton

West Point, 1964

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Randy Kunkel on May 20, 2006:

Buddy and I were in K-2 together for a couple of years. He was a visionary and a brilliant thinker and we often had great discussions about any number of topics. He was a gifted writer. He wrote the script and music with lyrics for our 100th Night Show, and then produced it as well. Several pieces of music are still played by the USMA band at certain events. I was always impressed at Buddy's approach to life and his class. I spoke with him earlier this year. He sounded great, emphasizing his continually deepening love for Gwen. Buddy Kelton was a good man, friend, and teacher.
