The AMBUCS Club, Chapter 409 of Jacksonville, held a memorial ceremony to posthumously honor friend and charter member, Larry Schmaljohn, with a presentation of a bench made by Shawn Lovekamp of Lovekamp Workshop, Inc, of Jacksonville.
Schmaljohn passed away in April of 2020 and was a 56-year member. The ceremony was held February 8 at Pathway Services. As a longtime member of the AMBUCS, Schmaljohn helped to keep Pathway funded in the early years of its establishment in the 1960s.
The club decided what better place for the bench than at the training room inside of Pathway Services. Larry Schmaljohn was a friend to all in the community. His family was on hand to see the bench, and after the presentation, the regularly scheduled meeting with a luncheon in the training room at Pathway Services.
