I Think THIS Paragraph Is More Important

…Yohai was born in Harlem in 1920. After he graduated from the Wharton School of business, he took a job at the Grumman aircraft factory on Long Island. During World War II, Yohai left work to enlist in the Navy and become a pilot.

His son, Robbie Yohai, of Berkeley, Calif., told Newsday, “He decided since he was making planes, he figured he could fly a plane.” He said his father had never taken an airplane ride. “The first time he was ever in an airplane, he was the co-pilot.”

Morrie Yohai transferred to the Marine Corps and served as a pilot in the South Pacific, transferring injured troops and cargo back and forth.

“He was excited by the experience,” his son said.

He was happy to be a Marine and was very proud of it.

…than the other stuff he did.

…But he’ll probably be remembered most as the creator of the Cheez Doodle.

In any case, he sounded like a lovely, lovely man.

Semper Fi, Mr. Yohai. May your skies always be clear and your cockpit filled with deliciousy cheesy in-flight snacks while you cloud dance.
