Saying Goodbye to Local War Veteran

Lawrence ‘Red’ Zufelt entered WWII before he graduated from high school. By the time his naval career was over, he had survived one of the war’s biggest battles, witnessed the bombing of Hiroshima, and continued serving through the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

Red passed away last week at the age of 90 in his home in Bend.

Friends and family paid tribute to him at a graveside service Wednesday, and Central Oregon Daily’s Warren Shultz was there.
