Thanks for coming over to our little piece of the net dedicated to our Father and the many years he spent serving his country. Inside you will find stories about his life, his likes and dislikes, and the many ships he sailed on during World War Two, and even Korea.


When "Pappy" passed on from this earth we wondered if anyone out there (other than our immediate family members) would ever visit a site as old and as personal as this one.


Since that day we have watched as his numbers continuously increase; letters come in with many questions, by people doing research reports, projects, lost family members in search of what happened to their loved ones during that fateful day the first L.S.T. (the 333) was sunk by the German Navy, and generally a constant viewing of the material found in these pages.

(UPDATE 2018!) If you feel as I do and want to see this old girl saved so that generations in the future witness just what our men and women had to do during the war to keep us free, then please go to this site, read the story and If you can please donate:



We are grateful of our Father's service to his country and know that he did thus with the selfless intent of ensuring the freedoms we all enjoy in these United States today.


We miss you Paw Paw. 


June 22nd, 1921 to April 11th, 2011 R.I.P.
