Strano 3 of 3: Although outta sight most of the time these past 25-30 years, he seldom was outta mind. He left quite a wake. He was nothing if not authentic! Not a few anecdotes are flooding back; perhaps for another time. Old friend, Det ALPHA brother, you will not be forgotten. You were a true friend. You did the Navy proud; by your many years of dedicated service as a combat support & ASW helicopter pilot, followed by your leadership instructing & managing in the Navy's premier combat helicopter flight & mission simulation facility at Navy JAX. And by doing so, you have honored your Navy family and your 1st family, your Connecticut family. May your heavenly signal be “Charlie”, and blessedly Rest In Peace. Joe Strano

Strano 1 of 3: The “Sav” may have departed on his last flight, but, like taps he will echo again & again in our memories . Though a NYC native, there will be no fughetting about ‘im! Belieing many appearances to the contrary, he was a “straight arrow”, though never seeming to travel in a straight line, He was guileless, an especially charming & rare quirk in an adult; but one I'm sure in which he was secretly proud! He was smart, intelligent even; and of course, SAVVY. He even ran for President! We shared many delightful times, many of which were in the dark – of a cockpit, of a club or a beach house on the JERSEY COAST, of the NASL bar, of the N. Atlantic doing ASW off the Canadian ship HMS Protecteur, etc... Even in the dark, with Carl “the light was on”! He was/will be legendary, though he wasn't a legend, and would've disdained being so thought. Beneath the Type A energy and the hubris that often goes with it (e.g. IMHO never crossed his lips), LCDR Carl always displayed a sense of place : 4th behind country, God, family – in the sequence that I came to see them displayed over the years. Yes, he did have a serious streak, and a funny one; not infrequently, he was the funniest when he was the most serious! His pet peeve, his bête noir, was other people who didn't take him or his latest suggestion as seriously as he did. Fortunately, he began to see the predictability of it; and thus its humor, which he played on, redeemingly.

You've always been a fine friend and shipmate Carl and the memories we shared will always be with us. Our paths will cross again in the other side and I'm sure you'll have all the arrangements set up for the squadron re-union. I'll never forget you Carl, God speed.

I will always remember Carl as being the ultimate "Emerald Knight." He has done as much in support of the squadron as anyone. Bless his memory!
