I first met Art Fairbanks years ago, when he was Tempe Police Chief and I was a reporter/columnist for the Tempe Daily News. I later had the opportunity to meet Frank and Ruth. I had the great honor of teaching their children at Saint Mary's High School. Art Fairbanks -- Great Fella, Great Life.

I did not know Mr. Fairbanks or have any connection with him but to read someone's life story as his just floors me with respect and admiration. He flew 35 combat missions when only 25 were necessary to be sent home. That is far beyond and above the call of duty. This example of the Greatest Generation will be sorely missed.
