Paul G Avery had a major impact on my life. In 1966 i was stationed in VP-23 at N.A.S. Brunswick, Maine. and in the summer a friend of mine came to me and asked if i would be interested in a blind date. I of course said yes, and i met Mr Avery’s daughter. after the date we saw each other a few times but I really got to know her father, Mr Avery. That year i wound up at their lake front campsite on Damarisocitta, Maine. Camping with the family on weekends and learning to fish the lake. He didn’t have a boat but we use to fish from the dock. by the end of the season i was getting ready to go on deployment until May so i had a chance to get an aluminum boat and I picked it up and gave it to Mr Avery for the lake. Mr and Mrs Avery Had a big effect on my life and he was a good man. I can still see him laughing at me when one night when i had gotten stopped in Brunswick by the pd and the police said that i hadn’t registered my car and they towed it. i was so mad, because i thought that i had registered it. He was on duty at bath pd and he was laughing so hard as i walked in and he said let me see the registration. the next day he took me up to get it registered. and he got the guy he knew who had towed my car to give it back to me.
