When Dutch passed they had a local burial for him in Sunbury, PA They flew his remains in to the Sunbury Airport in a B-25. It was a fitting send off including local speakers, tours of the aircraft and a lot of local news papers publishing reports, I attended the ceremony and took pictures of the event.
