  15. The Bechards house was the GO TO house back in the 70’s. Always a houseful of adults and kids running around, especially on Saturdays when all the nieces and nephews were there.
    I went to school with most of the Bechards at Blessed Sacrament.
    I would see BARRY out and about and he would always stop to say hello.
    Sympathies to all!
