Our condolences to Joyce and Kimberly and all of John's family, friends and loved ones. You are in our thoughts and prayers that God will give you peace, comfort you, and heal the broken hearts. We are grateful for John's service to our country in the U.S. Submarine Service having proudly served on the USS Gudgeon SS-567 which made history by being the first U.S. Submarine to circumnavigate the earth. To our "Brother of the Dolphin" ... "Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones. Thank you for your service to our country." -- Rev. Ray Fritz, National Chaplain United States Submarine Veterans, USSVI.
