Karl Bromann (July 20th, 1920 - June 30th, 2011) served as a Tiger Tank commander in the last two months of the war and accumulated over 40 tank kills. He was awarded the Knight’s Cross late in the war (April 29th, 1945) and never took possession of the award.
Though his time here was short, James Dean seemed to live a full life in his 24 years. Given more time, there is no doubt that he would have developed into an amazing actor, an outstanding director, and probably one of the best racers in the nation! He certainly believed in living every day to it’s fullest potential, which we see through his talent, his incredible list of hobbies, his range of friendships, and his passion for learning. He is truly and inspiration, not just for acting, but for living life… “enjoy the good in life while it is good”, he said.
Though James Dean will forever remain 24 in our eyes, James Dean the legend will forever be immortal in our hearts.
