After Mark K. Shriver's father died last year, he kept thinking of the words people used so consistently to describe the affable public servant known as "Sarge."
One of Sargent Shriver's sons is writing a tribute to the late Peace Corps founder.
Shriver writes that even as his father's health declined, he never let his worries allow him to become angry or anxious.
"It's a son's quest to figure out what made his father joyful, what made him successful, but success in the sense of being good as compared to being great," Shriver told The Associated Press in an interview at his Bethesda, Md., home, where photos of his father appear on a large bookcase in the living room. "There are a lot of great men and women that you don't want to go out to dinner with, you know, that when the cameras are turned off, they're not good to people."
