- White House Fellows Pay Tribute to Dana Mead
Over a dozen WHFFA members gathered at the Old Cadet Chapel on Tuesday, November 20th to attend Dana Mead’s funeral. It was a clear, cold day and the service featured reminiscences by both of Nancy and Dana’s sons, as well as their seven grandsons. Also speaking were his West Point roommate, Len Marrella; his West Point classmate and Fellow, Burn Loeftke (1970-71); and MIT’s President Emerita, Susan Hockfield.
Other Fellows in attendance included: Raoul Alcala (1976-77), Jane Crisco (widow of Keith Crisco (1970-71), Carlos Del Toro (1998-99), Glenn Wegner (1968-69), John Hanson (1970-71), Frank Leija (2014-15), Mike Levett (1969-70), Tom O’Brien (1970-71) and Louise Bray, Roger Porter (1974-75), John Shephard (1998-99) and David Vidal (1980-81).
Dana was an inspiration to us all, an accomplished leader in the military, business and academia, and we will miss him a great deal.
