He worked for General Motors in Ohio for several years. He was a black belt in karate and took pride in the fact that he sparred with Chuck Norris.

Family and friends may call at Carpenter and Ford Funeral Home, 209 Merchant St., Fairmont, from 1-8 p.m. today and from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Thursday. The funeral service will be held in the funeral home at 1 p.m. Thursday with Pastor Tom Shepherd officiating. Interment will follow at Pisgah Cemetery in Monongalia County where full military honors will be conducted by the Marion County Veterans Council Honor Guard.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
