Latta, Vernon John Latta

Source:  The Canton [Ohio] Repository; Tuesday, January 4, 2011

        Vernon John Latta, age, 95, youngest child of David Wilson and Effie Jane (Schaub) Latta, passed peacefully from this earth on Sunday, January 2, at Hendricks Regional Hospital in Danville, Indiana, following a year's battle with a multitude of health problems.

        Vern was born August 21, 1915, in Canton, Ohio. Growing up he loved to hunt and fish and work with tools. It was while at Canton South High School that he met Mary Elizabeth Miller, and he said that he knew right away that he would marry that girl some day. Many years later, August 23, 1940, they were married. Her brother, Johnny Miller (Elsie) of East Sparta is still his best friend.

        Vern worked at Hercules Motors in Canton, Ohio, before being drafted into the Army Air Force in 1943. In India he was part of a non-combat headquarters unit of the 20th Air Force that made and repaired airstrips and airplanes. The airstrips were used as a base to fly B-29's and C-46's and some gliders to China. This was known as flying the hump (over the Himalayas). Vern flew many trips in and out of China. On one of his trips to China there were four soldiers in the plane. The engines died, and the captain told them to jump and, shortly after, Vern saw the big fireball of the plane crash. He never saw the pilot or the captain again. Vern and the other private wandered about the countryside with no guns and subsisted on berries and hand-outs from the mountain people. Once a Chinese lady hid them in a cave. He was in China about 60 days altogether before flying back to the base in India. He was awarded four bronze stars for his contributions in the Asian-Pacific Theater in World War II.

After the war he and his brother Don established Latta Brothers, a feedmill and fuel oil business in Robertsville, Ohio. He continued to work there until moving to Fort Myers Beach, Florida, in 1967. There he worked for the Privateer, the first condominium at Fort Myers Beach. He and Mary focussed their time on fishing and gardening, playing bridge and euchre, and on work for the Fort Myers Beach Baptist Church. Vern was a deacon and head of the building committee that constructed the new church. While still in Canton, Vern filled the same capacity with Trinity Brethren Church, both as a deacon and as chairman of the building committee.

        Mary died October 18, 1998. Also preceding him in death in addition to his parents were an infant son, Jerry Richard Latta in 1946 and Vern's siblings, Elton, Zelvon, Donald, and Jan Edith Latta.

In 1999 Vern married family-friend Elizabeth (Folger) Thomasy. He thought he was so lucky to have found two wonderful women in his lifetime. For ten years they enjoyed summers in Vermont and winters in Florida. She survives. Also surviving are his daughter, Betty Jane (Don) Kitchen of Brownsburg, Indiana; two grandchildren, Jim (Drusilla) Kitchen and Kelli Kitchen-Ross (Randy Ross); five great-grandchildren: Madison, Riley, Ryder Ross and Andrew and Mikaela Kitchen.

        Private memorial services will be held by the family.

St. Francis student dies in head-on Ohio crash

        FORT WAYNE – A local family is mourning without knowing all the details that led to a 19-year-old dying in a car accident in Ohio.

        Andrew Moldovan, 19, was working for his uncle in Columbus and didn’t know the area very well, his mother said.

        “He had been out with some friends,” said Linda Moldovan. “We don’t know the whole story.”

        Moldovan was driving the wrong way on I-670 Friday near Leonard Avenue when his car crashed into a minivan driven by a Columbus man around 3 a.m., according to a story in the Columbus Dispatch.

        A call to Columbus police for information about the crash was not returned Monday.

        Linda Moldovan said her son had only been in Columbus for 2 1/2 weeks and was working at a Buffalo Wild Wings.

        The family said it is waiting for the results of an autopsy.

        “Unfortunately, I can’t say with any certainty that he wasn’t driving impaired,” Linda Moldovan said.

        Andrew just finished his first year at the University of Saint Francis, where he was a forward on the soccer team.

        While he excelled in soccer and baseball at Northrop High School, Andrew also had a 4.2 grade-point average.

        “He was a great son,” Linda Moldovan said. “If you ever had to describe him – he always seemed to excel at almost everything he did.”

        Andrew Moldovan was driving west in the eastbound lanes at “freeway speeds” when he struck the minivan, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

        The minivan driver, 20, was taken to a Columbus hospital in serious condition. An updated condition report was not available Monday.

        “We’re just numb and we’re praying for the young man that he hit,” Linda Moldovan said. “We don’t know how he’s doing and it’s devastating.”

        Services for Andrew Moldovan are at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Wallen Baptist Church, 1001 W. Wallen Road, with visitation one hour prior. Visitation also is from 2 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. today at D.O. McComb & Sons, Pine Valley Park Funeral Home, 1320 E. Dupont Road.
