SNJ 5/25 Drive-by to honor Veteran Gene Costill

Rally: Acme 20 S Delsea Dr, Clayton
Rally Time: 0930
KSU:1000


Gene Costill, 94 years old (02/05/1926)
5 term Mayor of Clayton
His grandfather, Elwood Costill, who was wounded in the Civil War, was one of Clayton's founders.
World War II veteran, having joined the Coast Guard at the age of 17. Gene spent his war braving storms and submarines in the North Atlantic, guarding American convoys from German U-boats.
Brother of Harold (Brud) Costill who was killed in the early stages of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
The Memorial Day parade in our community that was cancelled this year as a result of the Coronavirus was intended to honor Gene for his tireless efforts in getting his brother back to his final resting place.
