Re: Does anyone remember my father, Padre McAvany (Jack)?
I'm new to this site and kinda late responding to you query. I do remember your father from Rivers. My dad was stationed there from 63 to 66 and we lived 10 Shilo St.
I remember Sunday school in the balcony of the theatre and going to church and listening to your dad's sermons. I remember being quite inquisitive about the whole concept of religion in my early teens so I paid pretty close attention.
As I recall you had a younger sister by the name of Jewel. My older brother Jamie (Jim) has some recollection of your older sisters too. Were there names Darlene and Bonnie?
I, too, miss those days on the bases. They were such great communities and a wonderful way to grow up.
