  7. I’m so sorry to hear that Mr Trainor passed away. My father, Jeddie Bowles served with him in the Ski Patrol and I had the pleasure of meeting him on a visit to Colorado Springs in July 2012. He had on occasion telephoned my mother in Indiana and shared memories of him and my dad’s time together at “Tent City”. He was a very smart man and my dad spoke very highly of him. My mother is still living and I will be sure and tell her of your dad’s passing. Sincerely, Connie Bowles-Lamb
