State Rep. Chris Afendoulis of Grand Rapids Township today welcomed Bob Feighner to the Capitol, presenting him with a legislative tribute.  Feighner is a World War II veteran who served as a torpedoman in the United States Navy at the Pearl Harbor Naval Base. He will be 92 years old this week. Bob and his wife, Ruth, have lived in the same house (which they built) in Plainfield Township since 1955, and are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary this year. “We are forever grateful for the service of brave and selfless men and women like Bob Feighner,” Afendoulis said.  “The world is a different place because they didn’t hesitate when duty called, making extreme sacrifices in the fight for our country and freedoms.”
