Harry "Bub" Mishler, 84, died May 3, 2001, in Portland, Oregon. He was born February 18, 1917, in Hubbard, Oregon, and was raised in Sheridan, Oregon. Bub was a Mennonite and entered Civilian Public Service in 1943. He was one of the first group of CPS men to be trained as smokejumpers and jumped all three years of the program.
