  A BRAVE MAN! Posted for: WILLIAM EARL LOZIER: Bill Lozier was my brother and to this day
I miss him very much. Those who knew him
would affirm that he was a brave individual
who went to VietNam to do his part to win
the war. Bill was extremely smart, athletic, hard working and above all a great
brother to me. I will always remember him as
my hero. See you again in Heaven!

  Remembrance from a friend & babysitter Posted for: WILLIAM EARL LOZIER: I was the Lozier family babysitter for a couple years & lived just down the road. Bill was just a couple years younger than I was, while his brothers, John & Tim were quite small. Bill couldn't understand while it was ok for him to watch his little brothers most of the time, why I had to be there when his parents went to Chicago for the evening & wouldn't be back until early morning.

After much discussion I convinced him that I wasn't there to take care of him, just his brothers. That was ok with him then and he helped me get them ready for bed & after their bread & butter sprinkled with sugar treat, we tucked them in. Then we played cards all night. He always stayed up with me until his parents returned. That was the easiest & most enjoyable babysitting I had.

Bill was a very special young man, fun, polite, brave, & intelligent. As we grew up we kept in touch, as we went our separate ways. He came to see me in my flower shop before he shipped out. We talked of life, he had lots of plans for the future, things were going well for him. He said he came to tell me good bye, in case he didn't come home.
