Sarge Visher's Arrangements

I have gotten many questions regarding my post about the death of Sarge Visher. Here is his obituary as published by the Indy Star.

S. Sargent Visher On October 24, S. Sargent Visher, (64), known to all as Sarge, died. He is the son of John and Rosemary Treanor Visher and the husband of Belle Turner Choate. Sarge graduated from Shimer College and IUPUI School of Law and practiced law - in the public and private sectors - for many years. He also proudly worked as Congresswoman Julia Carson's Chief of Staff until her death. One of Sarge's many pursuits was the advancement of veteran's rights. He served in Vietnam and was awarded a purple heart and bronze star for that service. He will be forever in the hearts and minds of those who knew him. All are welcome to come to a gathering for those who wish a time to say goodbye - to be held at Leppert Mortuary in Nora at 740 East 86th Street, Indianapolis, IN, on Friday, October 29, 4:00-6:00 PM.

Doesn't the indianapolis star know that Purple Heart and Bronze Star are properly capitalized?

Thanks for posting this, Jon. I didn't realize Sarge had died. That is so sad. Sarge was really and truly a great guy.

Many is the time that he stood up for Decatur Township. I so very much appreciate that. And, he always had time to talk about politics.

Very sad.
