Grandfather Judson Hemperley 1919-2010


Rest in peace Gramps!!! My grandfather passed away on February 10th. He was a WWII Army Medic hero.....Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient. He saved many a life and won an Emmy award this past fall for a short documentary that was produced about his WWII experiences as an Army medic....Saving Life's, Not Taking Lives. look for it on YouTube. He lived a full life to 90 years young. Long time resident of Grants, NM since 1960. He will be dearly missed.
