Walter Kopacz, LCI 66, passed away in August, 2001.
Walt was a co-founder of the LCI Association and its first Treasurer.
Walter was also the reason the original LCI website came into being.
In June, 1998, I called Walter, as I wanted to create a Website for my dad and other LCI vets. Thanks to Walt’s encouragement and wealth of information, photographs and other materials, a very small, 5-page website was born.
It’s grown a great deal since then. For every old sailor who found a long-lost buddy, for every family member who discovered a father’s story, and for every interested Web surfer who discovered and enjoys this site…it all started with Walter.
