Robert "Posie" Pfaff, drum major of the Hanover Lancers Drum and Bugle Corps, passed away Sunday.
Posie had been with the Lancers since the '50s. A truly dedicated man who loved drum corps and the Lancers in particular, Posie continued to march despite a diagnosed heart condition which had previously required surgery.
Posie collapsed and died while the corps was forming up to step off in a parade. It can truly be said that he died while doing something he loved. We should all be so lucky.
