A man of valor, brave and bold, he served
with fortitude and grace
governing his country
with formidable strength.
He took a determined course of action,
with a promise to protect and defend its rights
by peaceful means and firm resolve,
never wavering, or cowering to enemies,
but upholding honor to the Jewish state
he passes peacefully, and like his past
won’t be forgotten, but laid to rest.
Joyce E. Johnson (2016)
