Just found out about John's passing from the Retiree Newsletter of the Coast Guard. John was a very good CG officer who I enjoyed working with for many years in Tampa and St. Petersburg Reserve Units. When we did not get a Christmas card this year I was afraid something was wrong. Judy I hope you are adjusting after John's untimely passing. May he rest in peace with our Lord.
