Drone Footage: Cape Henlopen 2017
Cape Henlopen in Lewes, Delaware. Amazing place.
Cape Henlopen State Park is a 5,193 acre (21 km²) Delaware state park on Cape Henlopen in Sussex County, Delaware, in the United States. William Penn made the beaches of Cape Henlopen one of the first public lands established in what has become the United States in 1682 with the declaration that Cape Henlopen would be for the usage of the citizens of Lewes and Sussex County. Cape Henlopen State Park has a 24-hour and year-round fishing pier as well as campgrounds. The remainder of the park is only open from sunrise to sunset, and includes a bathhouse on the Atlantic Ocean, an area for surf-fishing, a disc golf course, and bicycle lanes, walking paths, and a World War II-era watchtower which is open to the public. The beach at Herring Point is also a popular surfing spot.

In Memory of Bob Yoder of Turbotville (1922-2016)
Herr Mill Photos:
Bob Yoder was a WW2 Veteran, who just pasted away on August 24th of this year. He was a friend of mine and I will miss him. In this video, he talks about the old days when he came home from the war to work at construction of the new Herr Mill near Turbotville which was demolished in 2011 at the time this video was made.
Robert W. Yoder, at age 94, passed peacefully Wednesday, August 24, 2016, into the arms of his Lord.
He was born June 12, 1922, in Watsontown, the oldest son of the late Palmer B. and S. Catherine (Zettlemoyer) Yoder. He married the former Pearl L. Baker in 1950, and they enjoyed 62 years together until her death in June of 2012.
As a boy, he grew up in a farming family and often spoke of his love for the horses that he worked in the fields. He remembered fondly his school days at the California School, which he attended through the 8th grade. He served his country proudly in the United States Army during World War II in Africa and Italy from February 1943 until November 1945. He was a member of the 135th Infantry, 34th Red Bull Division. He achieved the rank of T/4 and served in the Radio corps, where he used and taught Morse code. He wore the Combat Infantryman’s Badge, the Good Conduct Medal and the European-Africa-Middle Eastern Theatre of Operations Ribbon with four battle stars. He was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
After his years of service to his country, he became employed by the Herr Milling Company in Turbotville, until he and his brother Carl formed ‘Yoder Brothers’ in the mid 1950’s. During their partnership that lasted until the mid 1970’s, they constructed hundreds of homes locally. Following his “retirement”, he formed Yoder Electric Service, continuing to do electrical and plumbing services until he was nearly 80.
He was a strong and resourceful man and a true member of the Greatest Generation. He was dedicated to his church and served in many capacities during his 78-year membership of Holy Spirit Evangelical Lutheran Church, formerly St. James Lutheran Church of Turbotville. Most recently, he served on the Building Committee for the new church, the completion to which both he and Pearl were committed.
In October of 2014, he left his home in Turbotville to become a resident of Heritage Springs Memory Care in Lewisburg. There, he thrived in the love and care he received from the very special staff members. He was their “Pap” and they were devoted to him, becoming his extended family.
He leaves behind his children who loved and respected him: Edna Basilio and her husband Raymond, of Landenberg, PA; JoAnn McMinn and her husband Howard, of Reedsville, PA and Jay Yoder and his wife Terri, of Turbotville. His six grandchildren adored him: Jennifer Yoder, Heather Harrison, Justin Yoder, Adrienne Grube, Sarah Adcock and Gina Seningen. He considered his eight great-grandchildren to be a special gift: Dakota, Logan and Jaydin Harrison, Emily and Camden Yoder, Tyler Grube and Hannah and Holden Seningen. Robert is also survived by two sisters, Jean Divers and Betty Hawley, both of Milton and one brother, Richard Yoder of Fallon, Nevada. In addition to his wife, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Carl J. (Bud) Yoder (1993) and Paul T. Yoder (2004) and one great-grandchild, Garrett Robert Harrison (2015).
Friends are invited to call from 6 to 8 PM Tuesday, August 30 at Brooks Funeral Home, 207 Broadway Street, Turbotville, and from 10 to 11 AM Wednesday, August 31, at Holy Spirit Evangelical Lutheran Church, 10275 Route 44, Turbotville, where the funeral with full Military honors will be held at 11 AM with the Rev. Thomas Glasoe officiating. Burial will follow at Green Lawn Memorial Park, Montgomery.
