Durward Allan Limbacher grew up in Farragut where he was known as being a kind and gentle with an interest in music. He attended Northwest Missouri State College for a short time before entering the Army where he trained as a medical corpsman. His tour in Vietnam started in September 1967 where he was assigned to the 199th Infantry Brigade. In December, while on patrol, his unit was ambushed. PFC Limbacher moved forward to treat two wounded soldiers. He then spotted another wounded comrade and, as he moved towards him, was killed by fire from a bunker less than ten yards away. He received the Bronze Star for Valor for his service. He is buried in the Sibley Cemetery in Louisiana near his mother’s family home.
