Default Obituary of 4th generation Streckfus

Capt. George Streckfus Clark was the grandson of Capt. Verne, the youngest of the Commodore's sons. Capt. Verne's base was New Orleans on the CAPITOL and PRESIDENT. "Streck" was the son of Verne's daughter Patsy and he continued the river tradition, but on towboats rather than excursions. I never met him, and in fact didn't know anything about him until I researched my articles for the Reflector several years ago. But he was obviously a Streckfus: river and family being his life...
