Clarence Dickman, Jr., 86

I received a letter on December 17, my Dad’s birthday, from the daughter of Junior Dickman. I had corresponded with him regarding the Dickman side of our family and am very sorry I was not able to meet him in person. The weekend we had our World Wide Gathering of the Pulskamps the Dickmans were busy in Tell City celebrating their local history there. Below is the obituary for this cousin of ours.
