    LINCOLN, Nebraska Fred Hargesheimer, a World War II Army pilot whose rescue by Pacific islanders led to a life of giving back as a builder of schools and teacher of children, died Thursday morning. He was 94. Richard Hargesheimer said his father had been suffering from poor health and passed away in Lincoln.

    Wow! He was a great guy, wasn't he!

    I'm sure his family and friends will miss him terribly. But he's at peace now, something he so richly deserved.

    Prayers to the friends and family of this wonderful man.

    Sincerely,
    fran
