In his free time, Dick Tobiason cleans the Bend Heroes Memorial in Brooks Park. The 86-year-old retired Army lieutenant colonel and Vietnam War veteran wipes pollen and dirt from the granite plaque engraved with the names of Bend residents who died while serving their country. The work is never a burden. Tobiason maintains the memorial to honor the veterans listed on the plaque. Last month, he prepared the site for a Memorial Day ceremony he is hosting Monday morning.
