Hello Mr. Rogers,
I am in contact with you regarding some disturbing news. Our Beloved Veteran David Lee (35 yrs old), has been called home by our Heavenly Father.
I am assuming you have heard the news already, but what was reported on Mr. David Lee is that early Saturday morning (around 1:30-2 am), he was a passenger, the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, the driver hit a barrier and the vehicle rolled over, ejecting Mr. Lee, the driver, Vince Bushhead (the late Leo Bushhead' son) & Thayen Ohte (Darrell "Bomber" Ohte' son) were taken to the hospital with minor injuries and Thayen released the following day, with Vince taken to jail after hospital release.
We SPVA is asking that all our Veterans please be in attendance, if you able. Per Dalton Tom, where the veterans gather together and discuss what will take place.
The services will take place this Friday, January 30th at the LDS Moapa Chapel, viewing from 2 to 3pm, with services beginning at 3pm, dinner 5pm, with all night singing following, sunrise burial.
I understand that all of our Veterans are getting up in the years and have a many of aches and pains. But if you are able to make it, I am sure his Mother, Michelle Lee would be very grateful.
THANK YOU to all of our Southern Paiute Veterans!!!!
