Wesley Hathaway, 95 years old and a life long resident of Dighton, passed away last week. He was a WW II veteran who drove one of the trucks in a convoy on the Burma Road over the Himalaya mountains to get to the airbase in Kunming, China. In Kunming, he was a hydrolics specialist working on the Flying Tiger's planes.
He was a long time member of the Dighton Historical Society and grew and donated tomato and pepper plants for our yearly plant sales. We are grateful for all that he did.
We would like to extend our condolences to his family and remember a life well lived.
