Master Chief: Rest in Peace....

Fair winds and following seas,
may forever you feel, upon your cheek, the salty breeze.
Your spirit lives on in many a heart,
your words captured,and never to depart.
May your loved ones have the comfort in knowing,
to heaven is where you are going.
For all that they have to do is look above,
and they will be reminded of your love.

My sincere condolences to the entire Coverick family. He was a good man and I'm sure he will be missed by all. He taught all of us who had the honor of playing basketball for him at Seven Holy Founders many valuable life lessons that to this day (nearly 50 years later) that I still try to live by. Rest in Peace Coach Coverick

The passing of this great man is sad, yet sweet. I'm sure his missed Mrs. C and now they are once again together. Mr. Coverick taught me, at a young age, more than he ever knew. His loss is felt by many I'm sure. I, among others, will never forget him. My condolences to the entire Coverick family.

Master Chief Coverick was not only an excellent leader, he was also a good friend.
He will always be remembered fondly by those of us fortunate to have served with him.
He will be greatly missed.

Fair winds and following seas.

Master Chief John Coverick was a shipmate in VP-60, an excellent maintenance chief, but above all a true friend. I learned a lot from him on running maintenance control and how to be a supervisor. We have lost a good one.
