The Nouasseur / Chapman, Lewis and Snyder Memorial
Three students from Nelson C. Brown High School located on Nouasseur Air Base, Morocco, were killed in an automobile accident in the early afternoon of March 23, 1957. The accident occurred on the Casablanca-Marrakech road, not far from the main gate of the air base.
Judith Ann Chapman was born February 21, 1940, in Mangum, Oklahoma. Judy attended 10th grade at H.H. Arnold High School in Wiesbaden, Germany, 1955-56, and would have graduated with the Nouasseur Class of ’58.
Thomas E. Lewis was born on March 16, 1940 in the Panama Canal Zone. Tom would have graduated with the Nouasseur Class of ’58.
James E. Snyder was born on December 30, 1940, in Altamont, New York. Jim attended school in Nicaro, Cuba from 1952-53, and would have graduated with the Nouasseur Class of ’59.
This tragic loss was felt throughtout the small base community. Friends and family still mourn and wonder what these wonderful young people might have accomplished in a full lifetime.
