I fondly remember Mr, Dowden.  My mother worked at the School Tax Office and Mr. Dowden was a friend to all that worked there. Mr, Dowedn would always carry on a conersation with me when I would visit my Mom at work.  He was always interested in how I was doing in football and what collage plans I had.  He was a good man and friendly to all he met.
