College Diploma Awarded To Armand Charest
College Diploma Awarded To Armand Charest
One of Armand's lifelong dream was to earn his Bachelor's degree. On December 23, 1986, at the age of 62, Armand did earn his Bachelor of Arts in English, through California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Armand did earn an Associates of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering through Farmingdale Agricultural College in the mid-1960s. Armand was a Tool and Die Maker, and had hopes of getting into engineering work. However, Armand would later complain that holding an Associates actually hurt him in his career; His Associates Degree made him overqualified for some jobs and under-qualified for others.

Death Certificate of Erich Wilkens
Death Certificate of Erich Wilkens. Erich died of an apparent heart attack while sitting in his recliner chair, in the main room of his cottage after dinner.

Death Certificate of Martha Alwine (Reichelt) Wilkens
Death Certificate of Martha Alwine (Reichelt) Wilkens
Death Certificate of Martha (Reichelt) Wilkens. Martha was killed crossing a street in Woodbridge, Virginia while her and her husband Eric were driving down to Florida on a spring vacation. Martha was struck by a car going at high speed and reportedly died instantly. Her body was brought back to Long Island, New York, and she was laid to rest at Pinelawn Memorial Park, Farmingdale.
Martha's name is misidentified on her death certificate. Instead of "Martha Alwine Wilkens," her name is listed as "Martha Herta Wilkens, which was the name of her daughter."
Another inconsistency in this death certificate is the listed date of death. Recollections of her grandchildren place her death on a Monday evening. However, the listed date of 6 April is a Thursday.
