Not sure what to say?

My heartfelt condolences to the family in the loss of your loved one. I'm still shocked and sadden by the news. I met Stat in 1989 when I moved from GA to MD and worked at NAVSEA. I can see him now, standing in the Underground in Crystal City with his blue Lab coat on and a coffee cup in his hand. He spoke to everyone. Such a beautiful spirit. He was the one who coined the phrase "how you doin?" Our paths went in different directions, me to a field activity and he to the Navy...

My deepest sympathy in the loss of an ex-co worker. We shared so much laughter and fun. Another NAVSEA employee in heaven.

My deepest sympathy to Maria, Nikita, Ronald and Stat's family. I am so sorry to learn of Stat's passing. I was a very good friend of your Mother. I lost contact with you when you lost your mother. I am sure you don't remember me, but all of you have periodically crossed my mind, including your mother. I still miss her to this day. Stay in peace all of you, and trust in God. Would love to catch up with you. My email is [email protected]

Truly great person and friend. When work together and hung out play basketball Navsea. Those where proud moments. I will miss you brother. I know your withGod asking what ever you need . I will take the lead.

May the God of peace continue to be with you during this difficult time. May Stat rest in eternal peace until we meet again.

My condolences to the family. May his memory be a constant source of joy to your heart.

One true and solid person, brother and friend. You will surely be missed my man.

Stat was a truly unique person. He was a childhood friend. Although we went our "separate ways" as so many of us do as we grow older, when we did see each other it was like "old times". I cherished his friendship, and in the day he could play a mean game of B-ball.


Bro. Stat,

Rest in peace until the time of refreshing. I cherish the fellowship we had the past 40 years and will always remember you for as long as I shall live.

One Blessed Love,
Bro. TonyR
