R.I.P. Arturo Chavez

The plaque above in memory of Arturo Chavez is on a covered bench in Brentwood's Crockett Park, along the walking/jogging path, between the wooded section of the path and the picnic tables behind the indoor soccer arena.  For you disc golfers, it's the bench that is just out of bounds, to the right, on hole 9. For the rest of you Eagle Scouts out there, that's 35.980106 N, -86.765111 W. My children and I were out there the morning of Memorial Day and took a breather on this bench.

The bench was built by devoted son and Troop 86 Eagle Scout Sam Chavez, who attended Woodland Middle School, adjacent to Crockett Park. Sam is now a student at the University of Tennessee - Chattanooga.

Sam's sister Christina Chavez graduated from UTC in 2009 and is currently on rotation in Singapore as a Finance Senior Analyst for Dell.

Arturo Chavez passed away ten years ago. He was in his forties.
