 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Retired, living in Del Webb's "Sun City," Georgetown, Texas.
Other Comments:
Played golf, met with the "Marines for Lunch Bunch" every Wednesday afternoon.

Had Texas plates that read: "3 Wars."

At times difficult, he was one hell of a warrior, he is my dad, and he is missed.
