Re: Letter writer

I am writing this thank you letter for my father, Dave Gothrow Sr. My dad passed away July 1, 2019, peacefully in his sleep.

Dave was an avid letter writer to the Appeal-Democrat’s Letters to the Editor for decades.

He was a very conservative red-blooded American who spoke his mind. There were people who loved his letters and he had many liberals who didn’t and that was OK with him.

He was a veteran who fought for this great country of ours. He fought so we could have a peaceful discussion and, yes, even disagree. I will never be a letter writer quite like my dad but I may try. I would like to thank everyone for allowing my father to be a part of their Appeal-Democrat lives. Rest in Peace, Dad.


Dave Gothrow Jr.,
