I thought I should report on the death of a former Chin-Be-Gota staff member from a few years back. He's been gone three years already.
Gerry Streit passed away on February 20, 2002. He died of a stroke at the age of 55.
I thought former CBG staffers might want to know of Gerry's passing.
Gerry probably worked at CBG longer than any other staffer. He spent 10 summers on staff with his last year in 1976 as Commissary Director.
He was active with Troop 29 and Troop 57 in Aurora.
Gerry also served as Order of the Arrow Lodge Advisor for Glikhikan Lodge 106 and was chairman of the Two River Council Camping Committee for several years as well.
He received Vigil Honor, Founders Award, District Award of Merit, Silver Beaver, Silver Antelope, and Distinguished Eagle Scout Award and probably other awards I don't know about.
Gerry loved Chin-Be-Gota and Scouting and worked on behalf of the program his entire lifetime.
