I had a business dealing with Murray. What a wonderful man. He made payments to me each month for several years. He always put in photos or WWII stories in each envelope. On the pay off in 2016 I treated him to a Las Vegas trip. He and my son hosted. He was such fun. What a wild man! He and his friend Joe took us out and wore us out! He is missed and loved by us.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Codman at the 8th Air Force Historical reunion in September. He was a joy to talk with and he had such a smile on his face when I asked about his name "Big Shorty". When I asked if he got in trouble he smiled and told me "No, I was the best damn engineer" Mr. Codman I will miss seeing you at the next reunion and I fondly remember our chats. I'm sorry for the loss of your loved one and in case I forgot to tell him...thank you for your service.

I met Murray Codman about 11 years and began a business relationship with him that was probably the best I have ever had, He was a very fair man and straight to the point, I have a lot of letters from him with pictures from WWII when he flew as a gunner into the most remote parts of Germany to protect this nation. It was great knowing him, working with him, and having him as a friend. I am very sorry to the family for there loss, We will all miss him.

Murray's cheerful spirit and ever youthful zest for adventure and life will comfort us as we remember him. His big heart lives even as "little shorty" has gone on. Murray served with the 447th Bomb Group as engineer/gunner on B-17 flying fortresses during WWII. To his last days he recalled his service as some of the best days of his life.

My sincere condolences to Jack's family and friends. I first met Jack about 12 years ago. Such a larger than life guy Jack was. An awesome person. I had the fortune to have numerous meals with him and his wife. I will greatly miss our talks. I am truly blessed to have had the chance to know them. So long Jack. RIP!!
