I've never written an obituary. It's tough to sum up nearly 90 years of an incredible life into a few short paragraphs.

You and yours are in our prayers. Obituaries are difficult. I wrote them for my father (who was of your grandfather's generation and had a remarkably similar life, just Marines and textile mills rather than Navy and steel mills), mother and grandmother. But you have already written an incredible eulogy for him in your post above. Hold tight to one another.

I know you're heartbroken right now but 90 years is a good run, brother. Not many of us will make it. I only wish I had gotten that extra 15+ years with my fishing buddy. This is him in occupied Germany in 1945-46
