My condolences for your loss. God will comfort you and help you. Matthew 5:4 and Psalm 86:17.

For the past 24+ years, we've been privileged to live across the street from O.C. and Barbara. He was always so interesting and fun to be around, with just a touch of the Marine Aviator's swagger.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Barbara and family.

"We shall meet, but we shall miss him."

I was a bride's maid at Barbara and Owen's wedding at the Naval Academy. They were a devoted and happy couple always.
On the occasion of their fiftieth anniversary Barbara remarked how much they loved and enjoyed one another still.
Owen tours in Vietnam Nam were acts of patriotism and bravery I greatly admire the more so because I was in Vietnam Nam as a civilian and saw some of the territory his command patrolled. He was a loving husband, devoted father and defender of America.

We will always remember your deep love for Barbara and your girls. You will be missed. Bill and Ann

Colonel,
You were the best. Now, we all fly "West" soon, see you there.

May the God of all comfort strengthen the family during this time of deep sorrow. Those who pass on, God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. My sincerest condolences. (Psalms 116:15)

God has given us a life span of 70 and 80 years if we are strong. May you celebrate a life well lived and loved by many. Psalms 90:10
