Schwarzkopf was also an avid fly angler. He made no secret that it was a huge passion of his. He was a fisherman all his life, but when he was stationed in Fort Lewis, near Tacoma, he took some fly fishing lessons & never looked back. He had said that Alaska was probably his favorite place to fly fish & that sounds like a good choice to me.
He was a generous man & he used the sport of angling to give back to others. In the mid-1990's he, along with actor Paul Newman, co-founded Camp Boggy Creek. This was a place where sick kids could go for a week to fish, swim, hike, etc & forget about their illnesses for a while. It's free for the kids, too & relies on donations to operate. The camp is located in Florida where Norman lived in retirement. He had talked about the fun he had teaching the kids to fish at the camp.
It's being reported that he died on Dec 27th in Tampa at the age of 78. His service & dedication to this nation was inspiring, as was his kindness to others. There will never be another like him.
