In Memorium

Posted on May 15, 2014 by Adjutant in News

Dear members of 1st NH Regiment and Friends,
It is with a very heavy heart that I pass along the sad news that Norwood Keeney, past Commander, last Colonel, and Lifetime member of the 1st NH Regiment passed away this morning after a month long final battle with Lung Cancer. His son, Woody, who served for years as our Ensign, contacted me this afternoon and asked me to pass along the news. Norwood would have turned 90 this July. He served in the field well into his 70s. I know many of the long time members and friends have great stories about The Colonel. He was my friend and mentor and I spent many hours traveling with him inthe early 80s (That is a story in itself!). I will pass along details as I get them.

In the meantime, please keep Norwood, his wife Phyllis and his son Woody in your thoughts and prayers.

Peace,
Jim Hayden
