Sorry to hear this about Marc Morano's dad

We certainly don't agree on climate, but I was saddened to find out that climate change skeptic extraordinaire Marc P. Morano's  father died recently.  He was a prominent lawyer and a World War II vet, who received the Purple Heart for action  in the Battle of the Bulge.

Here's the full obituary:

Carl J. Morano, 87, a Washington lawyer who specialized in criminal cases and traffic cases, died Nov. 20 at Avalon House, an assisted-living facility in McLean.

He had Parkinson’s disease, his son Thomas J. Morano said.

Mr. Morano had a solo law practice in Washington for 50 years before retiring in 2004.

Carl Joseph Morano was born in Scranton, Pa. He served in the Army during World War II and participated in the Battle of the Bulge in Europe. He received the Purple Heart.

He graduated in 1951 from Catholic University law school.

He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion.  He was a McLean resident until moving to Avalon House two months  before his death.

Survivors include his wife of 54 years, Leonore Leone Morano of  McLean; six children, Carl Morano of Belleville, N.J., Thomas J. Morano of McLean, Laura Jones of Vienna, William Morano of Sterling, Lisa Weber of Harpers Ferry, W.Va., and Marc P. Morano of Manassas;
and nine grandchildren.

My condolences to the Morano family.
