To all Giles' family members,
I met and knew Giles from late 1963 through the middle of 1967. This was at a time when he was stationed at Fort Bragg. We became fast friends and he often stayed with me when he would come to Washington, DC where I lived at the time.
I lost contact with Giles after June of 1967. Moved on with my life and didn't give much thought to or of Giles until I was having lunch with some friends when the conversation turned to heroes. I asked a friend at the table to google Giles Pace. Everyone at the table were absolutely stunned that I could have a friend who had experienced so much life.
Sometime in 2010 a reporter for Stars and Stripes wrote a piece about Giles and that immediately raised my curiosity as to Giles' whereabouts. I discovered that Giles worked in construction for PAE. Calling PAE, I was told he was no longer with them and they believed he was living in Las Vegas. On a trip to Las Vegas I could find nothing to indicate he was there.
With a cousin of mine in town to visit who remembered Giles I wanted to reintroduce him to Giles through those stories of Giles on the internet. Looking for those stories I came upon Giles' obituary.
I feel for your loss

I would be happy to hear from any family member(s) who would like to reach me.
