Happy Birthday to these locals!
Happy Birthday to John F. Aragon Sr. (left) and William Floryancic!
John F. Aragon Sr. turns 93
The Aragon family (and dog Pancho) treated Dad, Grandpa, Great-Grandpa and Great-Great-Grandpa to a surprise birthday potluck and cupcakes on March 8. Although he misses playing the guitar, the retired musician played a little tune on his organ despite severe arthritis. We thank God for letting us enjoy another day with him!
William Floryancic turns 103
William Floryancic celebrated his birthday on March 9 at the Grand Junction VA Medical Center. In addition to being a twice-drafted Army veteran, he was a well-known entrepreneur and held the prestigious title of Palisade Peach Festival’s “Town Grouch” for several years. (Town Grouch is a competition between residents over who can raise the most money.)
