Today I thought of you as I put my brother on a plane to go to Newport Rhode Island for OCS. I did not know you well, but I knew your wife. She is such a wonderful person, I don't think I have ever met anyone quite as kind hearted as her. My thoughts are always with her and your son. He is most adorable and they are both so lucky to have you as their angel.
Rest in peace and protect God's palace like you protected all of us in bootcamp at Great Lakes as our division leader. Your brothers from 295 will always remember you. You will always be in the hearts of the 84 recruits from that division. We will all meet again in heaven and march together as we did once with you ahead of our column with the sword in your hand leading us to success. God bless you Nevin, the best shipmate ever. Seaman Perez US Navy Reserve. Miami
We were in bootcamp together. He was our recruit chief petty officer for our division 295. He was a true leader and a hell of a sailor. My heart is broken. He was certainly the best of all of us and we always followed him troughout the whole training with confidence. What an extraordinary life has ended at such a young age. We will never forget you Nevin. You were the best. Tour son will be so proud of the father he had. My deepest condolences to all the family members. Seaman Adrian Perez from Miami Navy Reserve.
NEVOLUTION we will always miss you you were the best brother anyone could ever have (im sure scott would agree.) I love you. I promise Ill teach jack everything jack you taught me. I would want you to be so proud of what he'll become. He'll be everything you would have wanted him to be.
AME3(AW) Place was an outstanding student, friend and Sailor. I had the honor and privilege of being his C school instructor and fellow AME. I will miss his enthusiasm, friendship, positive attitude and unforgettable welcoming smile. Rest in peace my friend we have the watch. My deepest condolences to your family and friends.
Sending thoughts and prayers
Nev, I wish I could make it to pay my respects and lay you to rest along with everyone else. I send my deepest condolences to your loved ones, your beautiful wife and your sweet baby boy, Jack. I'm going to miss that smile and your bubbly personality. Btw, we still need to have our squirrel dinner that we talked about. Rest in Paradise. Always missed, NEVER forgotten.#LiveLikeNevin
Carol and family, I met him as a little boy and saw him grow into a man, I am sending love to you, I have a hard time thinking of it.
Carol, Scott & Scott Place... I'm truly at a loss for words to hear about Nevin. When we would visit you, Nevin and Scott always treated us like family. He will hold a special place in my heart. When we worked at Tuesday Morning and your boys would come up and help us putting the toy aisle together, they would always come up to me and ask me if they could get a certain toy, of course I always said yes. Now, as sad as it is all we have are those precious memories. Hold tight my friend.
It was always a joy seeing you, Nevin. We loved you & always will. Rest in Peace.
Joe, Jackie, Taylor & Trevor Berry
Our thoughts and Prayers go out to the family. Nevin will be truly missed. we loved him!
