In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Silverton Kiwanis Club honored its two living charter members by making them grand marshals of the Pet Parade last May. Orville Roth brought “TLC,” his “favorite bear who likes to throw candy to kids.” Beside him, Warren Levecke carried a photo of “Peaches” in his pocket. His loving lapdog had died the year before.
With Orville’s passing Oct. 13, 2013, Warren Levecke, 89, says he’s “the last of the Mohicans.”
Sometimes the Mohicans had to fight to survive; at other times they were rescued.
