Funeral Card Friday...Memorial Book for Henry C. Dreher Jr.

This shows the front cover of the Memorial Book given to his wife, Irene Banet Dreher, upon the funeral of Henry Condar Dreher Jr.

There is some controversy on Henry's middle name. It is recorded on all legal documents as "Conra". But Grandpa told me on numerous occasios that this was, in fact,an error. That his middle name as "Condar".

He stated that "Conrad" was a Russian Communist name, and his parents never named him Conrad, but instead chose "Condar" for his middle name.

Henry was born 31 December 1902 in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. He died 17 May 1977 in New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana.

He was the greatest man I've ever known, and I miss him terribly.
