Camp Courageous loses friend and former neighbor Harry Prull

Memorial-Harry Prull

Harry Prull was involved with Camp Courageous, since its beginning. Living “just down the road” from camp, he and camp’s first director, Gary Turbes, had a bond, that lasted a life time.

Any time I would see Harry, he would ask how Gary was doing. During those early years, Gary often called on Harry to help him do just about anyting…and Harry was always there to help…as was Harry’s entire family. That desire and compassion to help others, never ended, as Harry would take thousands of campers with special needs on hay rides and do other activities with them over the years.

A friend to all…the world won’t seem quite the same without Harry’s smiling face and the word “Tiger”!

Camp Courageous loses long-time volunteer Lois Holm

Mem-LoisHolmLois Holm, 91, of Greeley CO passed away March 22, 2014…thus ending a long era of volunteer professional assistance to Camp Courageous. Lois, and her husband, Lewis Holm played a very key role in my early years at Camp Courageous.

Lew was a development director for Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque for years. In 1980 they provided me countless hours of guidance in that field and dozens and dozens of very expensive reference books that were great resources. Lois was always there to provide her time, talents, and guidance in writing and communicating.

Our heart goes out to their children, Dan, Val,Tim, Peter, and Michael, brothers Don and Kermit and Lois’ family and friends. She leaves a deep void, but a beautiful legacy. Lois and Lew both desired their memorials to go to Camp Courageous. – cwb
