CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Dave Santrock, a five-year volunteer with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve passed away August 20, 2021. He was a retired orthopedic surgeon and served proudly in the United States Navy. He retired from his orthopedic practice in 2007.
A happenstance meeting with volunteer Dan Lanier struck up a conversation about retirement and he quickly found himself involved in ESGR.
Due to COVID concerns, The West Virginia Committee recently presented his wife Linda with a “Twice the Citizen” plaque in memory of Dave and his happy and willful spirit in serving the West Virginia ESGR Committee.
Brig Gen. William Crane, The Adjutant General for the West Virginia National Guard along with State Chair John Miller, Chair Emeritus Dan Lanier, Chuck Brannon, John Finlayson, and Johnnie Ross volunteers with ESGR were also in attendance to help honor and present the plaque to Linda Santrock.
