Most of these veterans are gone, but not forgotten. Not only did they protect and serve for our freedom, but also they have contributed to Windsor-Essex County by giving to the community.
Larry Costello (1924-2017), for one, has been awarded the Key to the City, which is only passed down to outstanding citizens whom the city wishes to honour. We remember him as a veterans' advocate and an amazing person to go to for help. To illustrate his services, he volunteered at the Windsor Historical Society and United Church of Canada Downtown Mission of Windsor Inc. for the past 15 years.
