    Ascending by Leadership

    Like a philosopher, Robert Kramer loved ideas

    and explored each one like a new continent

    worthy of his attentions and critical inquiries

    until he discovered the fertile country

    of truth.  Originality in thinking led him up

    to the high ground of expressive language, to

    the principles of law.  Read for your life, he believed.

    No wonder he reread Austen, Dickens, and Trollope

    for a fuller life.  Then one may be ready

    for contract law, for the fair scaling of mountains

    to the U.S. Supreme Court where each decision moves

    the whole country, stirs the world of ideas.

     

    A model citizen, David Fleming raised the bar

    in service to profession and community.  He upheld

    ethical standards in corporate, banking, and savings and loan law

    for 46 years, earning early the Jaycees’ distinction

    of one of California’s Five Outstanding Young Men,

    and serving finally the firm of Latham and Watkins,

    third largest in the nation.  Supporting justice, he resolved

    conflicts in federal, state, county, and city circles.

    With civic commitment as high a priority as career,

    he contributed 70,000 hours to over 30 boards.

    His surpassing leadership lifts charitable associations

    to heights of appreciation.

     

    After David Easson earned his pilot wings

    in the U.S. Air Force, he swept the upper air

    with leadership during W W II and Korea.

    This command and combat airman served with distinction

    at all his assigned stations.  No wonder

    he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross

    with two oak leaf clusters.  Minuteman

    and Missileman, he rose to the rank of Major General.

    A Kaaba Shrine Hospital Dad, he offers hope

    at Children’s Hospital in Chicago.  Among Quiet Birdmen,

    he shares stories with other retired flyers, his hours

    for air adventures raising him to cruising altitude.
