In Memory: Ret. Lt. Col. Leo James Paradise

Today, my family is gathering at Arlington National Cemetery for the internment of my grandfather Ret. Lt. Col. Leo James Paradise.  He passed away in May at the age of 82.


Joining us at Arlington will be my grandmother, Pop-pop's 7 children, their spouses, and many of my cousins and extended family. 


Pop-pop was a proud graduate of the University of Notre Dame and cheered for the Fighting Irish with every opportunity.  He was also a U.S. Army veteran of World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam.
