On Jan. 20, 2021, World War II veteran and Carlsbad resident Bill Fuson will celebrate his 96th birthday. Making Bill’s birthday special during COVID-19 has been difficult, but his family is working to put together a book of memories.
Please help us wish Bill a happy birthday by sending a card or dropping off a photo or written memory. You can mail cards directly to Bill Fuson, PO Box 1372, Carlsbad NM 88221. You can also drop off cards and memories with Shawna Calhoun at Cal’s Shade Western or leave them for us at City Hall and we’ll be happy to get them to her. Bill has supported this community in many ways through service to Heritage Park, the Carlsbad Community Foundation, the Eddy County Historical Society, the Carlsbad Museum Board and many other organizations. Most importantly, he has raised a great family in Carlsbad.
Happy birthday to Bill and thank you for your service, to your country and to this community.
From the office of Mayor Dale Janway
