Calling hours will be held today for the man who was president of Honor Flight Rochester.
Edwin “Woody” Mench, a retired Air Force colonel, was instrumental in starting the local Honor Flight chapter. The program sends World War II veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the memorial at no cost.
Mench died from prostate cancer on Thursday.
Calling hours are from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Keenan Funeral Home on Pittsford-Palmyra Road in Fairport and the funeral is Tuesday at 11 a.m. at St. Louis Church in Pittsford.
