Gone to the Great Campfire

Recommended Posts

On July 2, 2009 Jerrold Lockshin, 81, passed away. Jerry had a 70 year tenure in Scouting, starting at age 11, and still going strong at the end. Jerry was active as an adult volunteer in local, regional and national scouting. He was president of the Buckeye Coucnil, vice-president of Area 5 Central Region, and chairman of the National Jewish Committee on Scouting.


He was the recipient of numerous awards within the scouting, civic, and religious communities, including the Silver Beaver, Silver Antelope, and the Silver Buffalo. He was a Vigil member of the OA, and a fifth year Pipestone holder. He was proud that his sons were Eagle Scouts, and that his wife, daughter, son Tom received the Shofar Award for Jewish Scouting.


I only had the chance to know him for a few years. May the Great Campfire now hear his laughter.
