Butch was the most fun man. When I was younger, every time he saw me he would offer me a high five and just before I hit his palm he would flip it around and say I had to be quicker! This would keep me entertained every sabbath and I would make the attempt to catch him on his little trick also. When I got older he would always be willing to talk to me and joke about how I wasn't allowed to get taller than him. I thank God that I had him as an example. Heaven is truly going to be an amazing place.

One morning during a visit with Herman and Hisako, I wake up, go out to the kitchen, and moments later Hisako practically forces me into a seat and proceeds to serve up yet another huge, delicious breakfast. As Herman is putting his own plate together, Hisako puts mine together for me. "You eat.", she says as she places it in front of me. Herman looks at me and says, "I like when you stay here." I'm thinking, "Wow, his wife is spoiling me rotten, I'm eating his food, and he's happy I'm here?" Continuing with a smile, he says, "She doesn't cook like this when it's just me!" What a cute couple.This was just one of many fond memories with Hisako. I miss her deeply and my heart goes out to the Mauer family line. She was a wonderful person and I'm grateful for the time I got to spend with her. Greg Rose Spoiled Son-in-law

I am so sorry to hear of Butch's passing. Butch was my cousin and I have wonderful memories of him at family gatherings. The cousins would all play football and baseball in my grandparents back yard. I remember to this day, he would say "you only get 99 foul balls and your out" He was one of the oldest cousins so I don't if that was meant as an encouragement for us younger cousins that couldn't hit the ball straight. We had wonderful grandparents but Butch had a special place in their heart.

I used to work for her through the work-study program at CNU through veteran affairs. Perhaps people didn't see this as a "real" job, but I will always call this my first real job as an adult. I was so nervous going in, but Anna made me feel at home. She helped me with my military education benefits and I, in turn, helped her in small ways with other students who also applied for benefits at the school. She was so understanding and trusting and she believed in me. I forget the reason why, but I came over to her house before and while there she gave me a really nice jacket because I mentioned that I didn't really have any good ones. My mom had passed away as well so I think that was her way of telling me she cared. I always wanted to come back and visit her to catch up, but I kept putting it off. I only wish I'd contacted her again sooner. From the looks of it, however, it looks like she lived a beautiful life and accomplished quite a bit. I'll always cherish the memories I've had with her as I'm sure everyone else will too.

I have nothing but fond memories of Wes. Having served with him on staff of SWAP, I have been richly rewarded as a result of my acquaintance and relationship with him. His love for youth and his desire to present Jesus to them was infectious. He exhibited a joy that reflected the kingdom of God, and you couldn't be in his presence and not be impacted by it. I am so grateful that I was given the privilege to know him and serve with him. Thanks Wes for everything. Marilyn, Joan and I are praying for you and your family that God will strengthen and comfort you during this time. We send you our love.

Sean was a childhood friend of mine from Minoa, NY...For years Sean, Jake Pultorak and I would pal around the new neighborhood we all had moved into exploring all these empty streets and lots for houses that hadn't been developed yet...We had this huge playground with dirt mounds, forests, large pits and everything nature had to provide for 9 - 13 year old boys with to enjoy great adventures at the time...We grew up loving Star Wars and other scifi shows and movies...I still have some of those Star Wars toys we used to play with displayed in my music studio and the same ratty Battlestar Galactica poster on my bedroom wall...Sean, Jake and I used to ride out bikes through the trees in Pinegrove Junior High School and pretend we were racing Speeder Bikes from Empire Strikes Back, we would have dirtbomb wars, go frog hunting (I fell in the pond one time in front of them and some of our new neighborhood friends cuz I was showing off! Haha!) We played little league baseball but were on different teams but also played with neighborhood kids, played football, bought a lacrosse stick so I could play with Sean and Jake but was never as good as they were...I would cover for either Jake or Sean on their paper routes when they would go off camping or on vacation until I took over one of their routes and kept it til I got bit in the ass by a dog. Haha! Lots of great memories with my two dear childhood friends...Sadly they moved away when we got older but I am blessed that we were all able to connect on Facebook and were still able to share stories and comment on each others pictures and posts...He even shared stories of when he was in the Philippines (where I currently am) during his time in the Navy...I am honored and blessed to have been Sean's friend...I miss you man...Rest Easy my friend...Love and Miss You my dear friend.

Dear Barfield Family. I am falling short of words to express my deep sorrow on the sudden passing of your mother. It came as a real shock to me when I heard the news.

Wes was a truly remarkable man of God. I had the pleasure of being a student of Campus Life, where I accepted the Lord at Salt Fork.

Till we all meet again.

Wayne Clayton Bailey posted on 8/6/20

Wayne was a special friend who I always looked up to for many reasons, to include his goodness, kindness, patience and love of Christ. You could not be around Wayne very long until he began to share his faith and the mercy and goodness of God in Jesus Christ. He was a believer and he lived his faith. He was an inspiration to me and a great encourager. I knew Wayne as a Christian gentleman who never stepped off the path of faith. He loved the Word of God and spent much time in study and prayer to better equip himself to share the truth of Christ. Dear family know you are in our prayers. God's blessings and peace. Wayne and Lillian Bailey.

I had the fortune of working with Shelley for the past several years. She was beautiful, smart, highly capable, and always friendly. I found her inspiring; she found a way to manage work, family, and self-care, and she was amazing at it! Although gone way too soon, she impacted many. She will never know how many people's lives she improved, or her lasting impact on our organization. Sending her family deepest condolences, and "high fives" to Shelley's enduring spirit as God takes her into his embrace.

Lyrics in the "Song of Farewell" bring a smile when I think of our BFF Fe... "May the choirs of angels greet you, May they speed you to paradise..." I imagine the angels rolling their eyes as they have to slow down while Fe, like a child on Christmas morning, takes delight and looks in wonder at all the beauty on her way to Paradise. Imagine all the questions she must be asking! Jojo and I will miss our friend, her kindness, her love for her family and for life. However, the image of her finally reaching Heaven and her absolute joy at being reunited with her parents, family and friends once again whole and pain free brings great comfort. May you rest in peace and perpetual light shine on you dear Fe.

Prayers of strength and comfort during this difficult time. I saw Johnny last year at the Warwick Lawns reunion, he looked great and it was great to see him. He told me how I’ve changed since I was a little girl, of course prior to last year I had not seen him since childhood. To the family weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

I just learned of Michael Podesta’s passing when I went to his website to purchase his beautiful “Imagine” condolence cards. I have several beautiful pieces of his calligraphic art and have given it as gifts to special people. Though I did not know him, I glimpsed his heart. I hope his artwork and his gentle legacy will be carried on by his family.

He's called me Cousin ever since and there's no one that could tell us any different. He's truly been an inspiration to me based on his family values and his invaluable advice. RIP Cousin.

Joan and I were very close in spirit. We spoke once sometimes two times a day. She lived her whole life with severe back pain which affected her entire life and many decisions. In spite of this pain she could laugh and appeared mostly young at heart. She loved her kids and spoke of this most of the time. She was an excellent cook, and told me how she missed this the last couple of years. She loved musicals from the 50s and Broadway show tunes. She was a beautiful person, caring, and light of heart. We were close and shared many thoughts and memories over the phones for years. I will miss Joan. She missed her Mother and now they are together. Love you Joanie, Love, cousin Doris

From the very first day we met back in Elementary School, we were two peas in a pod. Learning life lessons together, getting in trouble together, conquering our fears together and making memories with the many people we can still call “Friend” today. Although our parent’s military careers caused us to lose touch over the years, we were able to find one another and stay in touch. I will always love and miss you Shelley. But I thank God for the time and memories we were able to share.

Despite the loss of the physical presence of Uncle Johnny, it is often during moments of silence that his legacy lives on to me. I always admired his overwhelming since of peace and calmness about him. Rarely ever even changing the tone of his voice no matter what the topic. Very rarely in life do you cross paths with people that you just know there is something special about them. Uncle Johnny was that guy. I will forever hold to my heart his funny smirk and smile when something funny was said. He always showed me the utmost respect and love and I can say I reciprocated it back in return. I love you Uncle Johnny and you are truly missed but we all know you are in a better place now watching over us from up above. Until we meet again

Johnny led his life with unabandoned passion and zeal. He was a remarkable combination of innocence and insight. Few understood Johnny and he was fine with that. He lived for Johnny and had no reservations in doing so. It is a trait I most admired in him. When I think of my brother I remember those moments watching him during family occasions. I would wonder what he was thinking amidst the laughster of a particular moment. I always felt he just wanted to get a bite to eat. But he endured the often retooled tales of Michael and Bum, who both can spin a tale that would have everyone in stitches. He will now always be with us. Johnny your journey was far more impactful and purposeful than you imagine. We will miss you, each in our our own special way. Love you for being you. Rest assured you left your mark!!

Always treated me with respect and love! When visiting our home, he and Michael would joke about childhood days and current events in the family. Johnny loved his family! Johnny was a great,dresser, clean and conservative! Ole school! I loved Johnny and I will miss Johnny! Rest-In-Peace in heaven with Kenny and Bobby! I know Kenny is showing you around Heaven now!!!

Wayne was a rock and salvation in my resurgence in my Christian faith. Both he and Earlene, as well as Cheri always offered open arms during the darkest times of my life. I spent many hours in his 'Goat Locker' discussing life, my current situation and what is to come. Never judgmental just plain up front common sense and above all do the right thing, as Jesus would do! I can still replay the many talks we had. What an amazing man, created by GOD. Still love him and miss our talks. Will replay many of them in mind. Sage advice this pure is hard to come by. I will miss her personal council but he will always be in my heart. Rest easy shipmate I have the watch. Not sure I am up to your standards but will do my best. I love you as a brother, shipmate, councilor and as a true friend. Wrap your arm's around Earlene and enjoy the pleasures of Heaven.

Wayne was a good man, mentor, teacher, and prayer warrior. He would stop and pray immediately with you. He loved the WWII big band music. He made a positive difference with his life in the lives of so many.

I always looked forward to his presence at family gatherings to hear his humorous stories and watch his interesting films of previous family events and his extensive travels. On many of his travels, our mother Margaret Frazier was in the group and always related Uncle Rupert’s kindness and even tempered actions. He was the model gentleman In all situations.

My brother and I would get a kick out of him making fun of a sporting event we were watching by telling us the game was fixed. If something was to happen, he would say "see he was told to do that" or "fumble the ball" etc. The heavens have gained a dear Saint and those who met or know him are better for it. Rest In Peace dear uncle until we hug again. Much Love and Prayers to you Brenda in being such a devoted and caring wife and life's partner. Nephew Steve

To our family and friends of Dorothy L. Hampton, we share in this loss and we exdend our prayers and sincere condolences to you. We pray that God will send His comforting Holy Spirit to bring love, peace, joy and happiness to your heart as you reflect on her impact on your life. One of my earliest childhood memories occurred when we visited Aunt Dorothy and her family at their home and businesses in Chester PA. We were amazed at the stores and restaurant they owned, and I was excited when she took us around town. She took us shopping and we later drank water that flowed from a fountain shaped like a lion's head. I was about seven years old and happy on this adventure. A day is coming when real, living lions will lie down with lambs. The memory of the lion's head fountain will be nothing when we all get to heaven. We will feast at the welcome table and drink from God's Crystal fountain. We pray that when Christ returns, we will all be ready to meet our Lord and Savior in peace, to be reunited with loved ones and to live with God throughout eternity. Until then, let's live and love like Jesus loves us. Viola J. Wilkes, Sister-in-law A. Sherelle & Donald E. Miller Niece & Spouse

Nancy reached out to me in 1996 when I began attending Community UMC as a newly grieving widow. I would come to church, sit alone, and be silently tearful through the services hoping not to have to interact with anyone when the service was over. Nancy was sooo very kind to smile that beautiful smile of hers, engage me with a word or two , and consistently invite me to Sunday school. Although I declined, it meant a great deal to me to have been validated during a low time in my life. May her legacy of love bless you all Beth, Susan, Dink and family.

Joey was not only my brother-in law but my friend and a dad to my niece and nephews..I cant count the times when I could be soooo mad at him and then he would say something stupid or funny to make me laugh. His favorite thing to call me was "dum dum". I guess because him and I were alike and some crazy crap would come out of our mouthes. He LOVED ALL OF HIS KIDS!! Being a parent I know that we love all of our kids equally. There are times when we disagree but our love doesn't change..His son justin is a shy and quiet guy and didnt feel comfortable around alot of people so he didnt go to hang out with joey much. Joey was ALWAYS surrounded by a group of people.lol. autumn and Joseph were troopers and could handle it. Joey and I have known each other for somewhere around 30 years..man there were some crazy times. Joey was driving and I was in the passenger seat(passed out) and he took me and threw me in the driver's seat and hauled ass out of there..people called him " Hollywood" for different reasons, I think one reason is because he loved the ladies.. Joey had alot of love for alot of people. I remember hearing alot about angie mae(?) . I dont remember meeting her but he was quite fond of her. Then there is jen and we know that they were crazy about each other..only joey could drive you crazy and make you love him at the same time. To all of his friends, joey loved each and every single one of you!! Justin, Joseph and autumn I have seen your pain over the last 11 days and I'm so sorry. It's not easy losing your father but planning and paying for the service is hard. And for my sister tina, he never stopped loving you. I KNOW he drove you crazy but look at the wonderful kids that came from all of the craziness.....IM ALMOST DONE JUST HOLD ON..To those of you who are able to do so maybe you will make a donation to altmeyer to help his kids pay for his services. I know, it's not appropriate but as joey would say..IT IS WHAT IT IS..

Mike was a mentor to me as young LT when I first arrived at SBT20 and he was a PC CO. My detachment worked extensively with his ship locally and down in Puerto Rico. Mike was always there to provide me guidance and throughout my career our paths continued to cross. My condolences to the entire family. I will be left with fond memories and wisdom from the postiive impact he had on me.

Ott Family- There are no words, I can only offer my condolences. Boys, your father was what I deem a true supporter. A man, he told me when he had an issue and worked with me to find a solution. Straight forward, no nonsense. Jay Hoffman and I were extremely grateful for his support and contributions. Let his way guide you through this difficult time! Thoughts and prayers are with you all!

Dear Ott family, I am so sorry for your loss of a tremendous man, husband and father. We worked together when I was Commander of Group TWO and he was a shining star and top leader among a dozen other commanding officers. When I first met with him I took away the knowledge that he was a loving husband and devoted father. We all need to be more like Mike. You are in my prayers for grace, peace and understanding.

Joseph Sebester 6/9/70 - 7/6/20 It's with a sad heart I write this...I couldn't believe when I got the news of your death...it's still hard for me to accept. I cry everyday trying to find comfort in God's will and plan in all of this. I had read recently the definition of a soul mate...that is what I feel you were to me....I spent more than a quarter of my life with you....we had some great times and some not so great times...we both struggled to like each other but never stopped loving each other which to this day and everyday after will comfort me. God's plan had me leave town the same day I received this deviating news...I believe he knew I would need time away to deal with this loss...I thought alot about you and the memories we shared...You were forever an optimist and found humor in everything even driving me crazy! I think a saw Amy Vaughn's post that described you as the most passionate person she knew which was sooo spot on. I want to thank her for filling the last your life with happiness. I also want to thank Tina for giving you an awesome bunch of kids and being a rock for all of them and not taking your crap lol....you did like us fiesty ones. I struggled while you were alive to share you with others but now your gone I see that was your purpose. You have so many people that love you because you loved all of us so deeply we could help but love you back. Your live was amazing and everyone that knew you knew you loved them! Some of us have called you Hollywood because you knew so many people it was like you were famous. Some of your favorite saying were ”I don't call you son because your mine I call you son because you shine”..."It is what it is"...which I still say you stole from me lol...and my least favorite thing u would say to me was...”your right but your wrong" lol....I thought you would drive me crazy forever...I will think of you Everytime I hear crazy girl don't u know that I love you...I want to thank you for the part you played in my kid's life...that has always meant alot to me and them! I know the true loves of your life was your "crumb snatchers" my heart breaks for them but know you will forever be watching over all of them and us. I'm glad God's plan permitted me to talk to you one last time before you went home! I luv u 2 heaven Joey!

Nancy, Walter and their children were dear next door neighbors to my family. I was in high school when my father built a house next to theirs. I taught several years with Nancy at Point O'View; our son, Richard, spent many hours in Scouts with Dink; and, our family watched the Pope family expand their family as we all attended CUMC. Walter became the true Santa Claus to many of our grandchildren! Nancy and Walter were wonderful neighbors. Their love for family, dedication to the Kempsville community, service to our church and genuine kindness shall be fondly remembered. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Beth, Susan, Dink and their families.

Sean was my shipmate, friend and brother. Although time and distance may have kept us apart, when we spoke it was as if I saw him 5 min ago. He treated me with respect and befriended me when I joined the Abraham Lincoln. He was a true friend always joking and teaching as well. I’m so sad he’s gone. But he will forever live in my heart. God speed my brother, we have the watch......

 

Jake Pultorak posted on 7/13/20

Sean Collins moved into the house across from me on Grover Street around 1978, when we were in third grade. We became fast friends, instantly bonding over the latest craze, the sci-fi movie Star Wars. We collected Star Wars figures, watched Battlestar Galactica, climbed trees in our backyards, built treehouses, made our own bows and arrows, crafted lacrosse sticks out of plastic scoops and broomsticks, played wiffle ball with his pitch-back, and sledded down the slope behind Park Hill Elementary School. We played Star Wars constantly, with toy blasters and makeshift lightsabers. Sean always got to be Han Solo, because he had darker hair, and I had to be Luke. I can remember us intensely discussing the rumors floating around before Empire Strikes Back was released, that Darth Vader might be Luke’s father…impossible! Our Dads took us to see it at the Shoppingtown Mall theatre, as soon as it came out. Over the next few months, Sean perfected an imitation of Luke screaming “Nooooooo!!!” to Darth Vader after losing his hand and being told this terrible news, which still makes me smile to this day. Just before fifth grade, my family moved to the next town over, in the same school district but at a different school. It was tough to leave my best friend behind, but it didn’t last long. After a few months, his parents also moved to my new neighborhood, this time just around the corner, a few houses away. We were ecstatic. The new neighborhood was a development under construction in Minoa, NY, and featured newly excavated house foundations, giant piles of dirt, concrete storm drain manholes, and massive piles of uprooted treetrunks from patches of woods that had been cleared to make way for new cul-de-sacs and homes. This was an absolute dreamscape for us kids. Together with our new buddy Marco De La Paz, we explored every nook and cranny of this amazing playland, built forts and played dirt-bomb wars across the pits and dirtpiles, every day until it was time to run home for dinner. We rode our dirtbikes around the streets and on the hilly trails that snaked through the woods, making jumps over sand pits, daring each other to see how fast we could go. In the winter we would do the same, with snowballs replacing the clods of dirt we hurled at each other all summer, and flying on sleds down the hills instead of dirtbikes. When we were eleven or so, we both took on paper routes, which had us delivering newspapers on our bikes in all seasons, unless the snow was so deep that we had to trudge around on foot. Every morning we would meet up where both of our routes ended and ride home together, or on weekends zip to McMahon’s deli and grocery store for donuts and milk, purchased with spare change from our routes. We would cover for each other’s routes when either of us were away, and we had every house on both routes memorized, including where each family wanted their paper left, in the door, on the stoop, or in the mailbox. On our routes we would always have first pick of anything good people were getting rid of on garbage day, and we would scavenge bikes and bike parts, for garage projects back home. Sean was already a master tinkerer, and could fix anything mechanical, building entire junker dirtbikes out of salvaged pieces and garage sale finds. Besides our paper routes, we were constantly mowing lawns or shoveling driveways, at our own houses or making money doing it for neighbors. Even as a kid, Sean had a work ethic and motivational drive that would put most to shame. We continued to play wiffle ball and were in little league together, Sean a wiry and fast infielder with a good arm, me a hopeless case with the lowest batting average in the league. Our Dads played softball together, and our families would watch their league games on Wednesday nights, and we would climb all over the wooden play structures at Maxwell Park with the other kids. Sometimes our Dads would take us fishing on Oneida Lake for perch and walleye, or we would ride our bikes to Kaiser Dam way out in Kirkville to fish there, or beyond the train bridge in Minoa, where we mostly caught crayfish. We played Steal the Flag or Nerf football with all the neighborhood kids, if we could round up enough people. We played Atari video games, and thought the graphics were amazing…kids today would laugh at them! We now had real lacrosse sticks, and lacrosse and street hockey became our favorite sports. We played constantly in our neighborhood, and Sean’s passion was always to be the goalie. He had a hockey goalie mask painted up just like a horror movie character. When not being used in the nets, it would be used to scare the heck out of my sister and her friends when they had sleepovers, and we would be camping outside under makeshift tarp tents, running around with our flashlights. We played street hockey whenever we could, and would wait impatiently for after-school floor hockey intramurals in the school gym. Rollerblades had just come out and we couldn’t afford them, but we used regular clunky roller skates to play roller hockey as well. We joined the lacrosse summer leagues in sixth grade, and then played lacrosse in junior high and freshman and sophomore years. Sean loved the connection of the sport with his Mohawk ancestry, and even had a real wooden leather-strung stick he had found at a garage sale. I remember our Dads taking us to see the NY State high school lacrosse championships in eighth grade, watching our local rivals West Genesee beat Long Island powerhouse Garden City. We were both attackmen on the same line, and I remember us practicing our plays and drills, and walking home from practice together from Pine Grove. Sean got me to join his boy scout troop when we lived in Minoa, as I had never done cub scouts like he had. He quickly took me under his wing and taught me the ropes of skills awards, merit badges, and various camping skills. But mainly we were there for fun. We had amazing camping trips that had us roaming through old growth forests, seeing B-52 bombers at Griffiss Air Force Base, hiking all around Boston, sleeping on a massive WWII battleship, cooking around massive campfires, and even building our own dogsled named the “Rushin’ Disaster” for Panther Patrol, which we pulled to victory in a Klondike Derby where the temperature was a record-setting minus 37 degrees. I remember our boots being frozen solid in our tent that morning, and we had to go warm them up in the heated cabin where the scoutmasters slept! We had always loved archery, and after making our own bows for so many years, we finally got real ones, first recurves and then compounds. Along with our Dads, we began to pursue archery as a serious hobby. I remember many fun times when our families would go on picnics together to Pratts Falls state park, which had an archery range and an archery course that snaked through the woods, with targets spaced along the way like a golf course. When we were fourteen, we were finally old enough to go deer hunting with our Dads during archery season, and we were in absolute heaven, alone in the woods with our bows in the rolling hills of Upstate NY, covered in camouflage in pursuit of wily whitetails. After our sophomore year, my family moved away to Cleveland, OH. A few months later, Sean’s Dad was transferred too, and they moved to Canandaigua, NY. We only saw each other a few times after that, when he visited Ohio, or I visited him up near Rochester. After high school, he went off to join the Navy, and we only caught up via phone calls every few years, as he was often on the other side of the world. With the dawn of social media around 2009, I was able to reconnect with Sean online, and we could again relive our memories and keep up to date on each other’s lives. I finally had a chance to see him again in 2015, when my Dad and I took a trip to Yorktown, VA. It was so great to see my old buddy Sean, and he regaled me with stories of how he really was the goalie on his Canandaigua lacrosse team, and made some game-winning saves. I got to meet his wife Nikki and his adorable daughter Olivia, and he was so proud to tell me about his older kids Shane and Cheyenne, though I could see how painful it was for him not to be part of their daily lives, as they lived in different parts of the country. He grinned like old times behind the wheel of my Tesla as he tested her full acceleration, and we always joked about he couldn’t wait for the Tesla pickup truck, which was more his style. I never got to see him again in person, but I did get to see his antics online, and talk to him on Facebook over the next few years, which sadly were not easy for him, as life seemed to throw him one curve ball after another, each new loss worse than the last. But he always stood tall and soldiered on, perhaps with the stalwart bravery of his native heritage, and certainly always with his ever-present optimism and humor, and certainty that with just a little more hard work, things would get better. Rest easy Sean, I hope the pain is finally gone, and you are in a happier place. I am so glad I got one more chance to see you, and see the joy on your face and pride in being a father. Thank you for making this world a better place with your ever-loyal friendship. I’ll cover your paper route for you while you are gone, and I’ll see you in the great camp out on the other side.

All the positive advice to always live life to the fullest, thank you for always being there for me through hard times, I always noticed he would always put his friends first, even though he’d been going through his own battles. Thats how I knew I had someone very special in my life. Now when I think of you, yeah I cry, but then I catch myself laughing at times because I think of all the hilarious things you’d say and we’d do. There were more smiles than anything. Mi querido amigo, my pal, now you can rest easy no more pain. I will miss you tremendously. Thank you for always making all the bullshit seem like it was no big thing. You always made me feel like it’s all gonna be alright, even till your last days here on this earth.

Dear Family, Just heard late yesterday about Laura's passing and didn't know any dates etc for the funeral until just now. So sorry we were not able to join you at her service. We first met Laura in 1966, when we moved next door to her family. Our children and Laura were about the same age and have many good memories of sharing those years of friendship. As a young adult she became a loving caretaker of her grandparents and both of her parents She seemed to have endless energy and we never heard her complain. We want the family to know we will always treasure those early years of memories and pray you will find peace and hope with your memories of special times shared as a friend or family member. We send our love.

I am so very saddened by Michael's passing, but so very happy that he's now thriving. He was a sweet and gentle man with an extremely deep spirituality. He could dig nuggets out of the Bible that were often overlooked. He would sometimes bring in a piece of artwork to go with the Scripture we were studying in the Bible Study class. He was amazingly talented and amazingly humble, and he was well-loved by all at Christ Episcopal Church, Smithfield. We were blessed to call him "friend" and he will be missed.

So sorry to hear the sad news of Chuck’s passing. I hadn’t seen him since he came to my wedding in May 1992. But I’ve often though of him through the years. One-of-a-kind, he never failed to make me laugh and encourage me when we worked together at the Navy School of Work Study. He taught me about the subculture of Navy Chiefs and once took another coworker and me for a lunchtime flight. He put new siding on my mother’s house and shared his wisdom about rental properties. Such a colorful, go-getter, vibrant character. I will not forget him. May peace be with all his loved ones.

BGen Cowdrey was my division Commander when I had the 3rd Marine Regiment. Honor, Courage and Commitment run deep in that family. and certainly in BGen Cowdrey. BG Cowdrey was a Marine's. Marine. He set a good example, gave good guidance, expected you to meet the high standards he set, then stepped aside and let you do your job. If you missed the mark, he held you accountable, but he always remained compassionate. He lived far longer than expected as he fought his final battle. For those with faith, we know he is in a better place. While he will be missed, we also know he will be there with Saint Peter to welcome us when we reach the pearly gates. Our deepest condolences to the family. S/F Jeff and Kathy Patterson

Michael stayed with us many times when he’d do craft shows up in Somerset. We’d help him break down his booth and load all his gear back into his van, after which we’d come back to our house for a nice bottle of wine. He was the consummate storyteller, always able to weave a tale that made us smile and laugh. He gave us a poem by Billy Collins, entitled “Another Reason Why I Don’t Keep A Gun In The House,” about the neighbor’s dog who won’t stop barking - even after a full-volume Beethoven symphony is used to temporarily drown out the dog. Michael penned a note on it: “This breaks me up/down every time I try to read it.” We will miss him until we meet again. He left us too soon. We’ll love him forever.

 

Kate Germond posted on 7/5/20

Michael would stay with us when he came north for the craft show here in New Jersey. What a delight to have him for three solid days. He was with us when he got that early morning call that Kazziah had died. We were all gutted-- he had spent the evening regaling us with tales of his travels with her to California to important places from his past. It was a sweet time, only to be shattered with this news. As we dropped him off at the airport he turned to us and said, "if anyone has the tools to get through this, it's me". I will carry him forever in my heart. Much love to his family, we'll see you later for our final good bye.

My brother was all things to everyone, he never bypassed an opportunity to gain your friendship or loyalty. You knew exactly where he stood on just about every subject matter that was put before him. You might not be in 100 percent agreement, but he never waffled on his commitment, and took your difference of opinion in stride. He was the quintessential "Silverback Gorilla", constantly up on alert, moving his family from place to place. Tough on every level, extremely protective of his family and the Marines that served under him. Never ran away from danger, stood confident and proud in the face of threats and the horrific cancer he fought for 5 1/2 yrs. Physically impressive, emotionally astute, but, had the softest in his heart to love without compromise, especially his college sweetheart (Donna), his (3) children and (6) grandchildren. They all looked to him for strength and guidance. His legacy and the people he touched will live on, the stories will not be exaggerated because he was the "real deal" , but never acted as if he was, others just felt it. I will miss my big brother as others will too, he cannot be replaced but will never be forgotten. "Love you like a brother" Semper Fi.

Classmates at USMC Command & Staff College Quantico, VA (85-86), we later crossed paths when Chris was an exchange officer at Marine Aircraft Group-16 in Tustin, CA circa 1988-89, there was unmistakable greatness about him. His enthusiasm, joy, sense of humor and leadership were magnetic. In every sense, he personified our highest ideals of honor, service and loyalty. The Corps was blessed. Deepest regrets.

Over my lifetime I have met some great people. Chris Cowdrey was one of them. I always looked up to him. He was like a mentor. In life there are some things you never forget. It was my first college game against NC State I was a sophomore year. It was Clairborne’s debute. Chris was a seasoned senior . As the defensive team ran on the field for the first time I was so nervous as I was like a Zombi. It was my job to call the defensive signals. We are in the the typewriter huddle,I’m trying to call the signals. I froze and here are all these guys jacked up waiting to her the first defensive scheme. I looked over at Chris and he knew right away I was in trouble. He looked at me straight in the end and said “ Jimmy it’s gonna be all right we are going to have fun!” His confidence was contagious and the reason why he was such a great leader in the military. He snapped me back into reality, he was right, it was fun. Physically we kicked Lou Holtz’s teams butts that day but only tied them. As defensive Captain Chtis was a big part of turning Maryland starting the Claiborne era. It was no surprise he went on to do great things. He will be missed by friends, family, former Maryland football and lacrosse teammates and his band of Military band of brothers and sisters. RIP Chris we miss you and honor what you have done for your country.

CHARLES COWDREY posted on 7/4/20

The great ones are servants. they are not over another person rather they are under others. Chris spent his time on earth serving others. Starting with the love he had for Donna the love of his life. Chris loved his children...... Christian, Lauren and Lindsey, and man oh man did he loved his grandchildren..........I have the photos to prove it. Corey, Stuart and Ann you were so respected, admired and yes, loved. He loved his country. He loved this county so much that he would go into harms way so we could enjoy what he was missing. He once told me that he joined the Marines so others could experience freedom. He loved his Marine Corp and the Marine Corp loved him back with the rank of General. For those of us that had the chance to visit Chris in the hospital we recall his love for the corpsman......it moved us all to tears as he'd tell us "they were the heroes" During this final battle Chris had courage......and that courage gaves us all hope. After a full life of 70 years Chris's life was now defined by monthly check ins at Duke. Regardless if it was his 30, 60 or 90 day checkup Chris would always say the same three things, Hey don't worry about me. I feel for those kids that are battling cancer and haven't had a full life. And boy the traffic........it's horrible! Well, he is a Cowdrey. Chris gave us all hope. Hope is no replacement for the pain and shock we feel today. Hope is not a way out, but It is the way through. It is not a detour but a road straight into the throats of discomforts. It is a way of treating ourselves, a way of behaving. That was Chris's way. As for me, I want something that will help me understand or something that will stretch my understanding to fit around what has just happened to my brother. In short I want an explanation. All I am left with is Chris's example of hope and courage. As God said.....If you would be a follower of mine you must take up your cross and follow me, If you would be where I am you must go where I go. Chris did and he is now home. Chris is with God. Chris has shown us the way out of this grief. Just have hope and courage. To the extended Cowdrey family...... may Gods love guide you always.

The Very Rev. Gary J. Barker posted on 7/3/20

I was rector at Christ Episcopal Church, Smithfield, for a decade and was blessed to know Michael there. He was a gentle giant heart in my life for a number of years. I still recall him coming regularly to our weekday Bible study and once coming to one of his "aha's." He was sure that the image in our stained glass of Jesus knocking on the door to get in (taken from a passage in Revelation 3:20) simply had it wrong. Jesus was not knocking to get in so much as he was knocking so we would open the door and come out of our dark little closet to the wide glories God wanted us to find where Jesus was. Michael created a lovely calligraphy of it within a week or two with the scripture over the image of a doorway all aglow with the light coming from beyond it. Rise in that glory, Michael. You are beyond that door in a whole new way now.

My deepest sympathy to Donna and all the Cowdrey family. Chris and I were former teammates at the University of Maryland. I will always remember him as a leader and a warrior. He was one tough dude and a class act. We are truly grateful for his service to our country and may the Cowdrey family find peace and comfort in the days ahead. God Bless.

Donna, We are so sorry for your loss. Whenever someone passes who is close to me I am reminded of two scripture verses. Ps 116:15 says "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Christ is there to welcome Chris to the Kingdom as when God welcomed Christ after his crucifixion. The 2nd is from Job 19:26-27 which says "I know my redeemer lives and and that after my death, yet in my skin, I will see God." This is our promise of a new body in the afterlife, free of all pain and with our loved ones. Although dearly missed, Chris is in a great place. Love, Ed and Marilou

Seldom in a lifetime do you meet someone with the skills, knowledge and friendship that Chris possessed. he was indeed a Marine's Marine and notwithstanding that as a USNA grad I never held his Maryland Football/Lacrosse success against him, I know that his leadership started there and our Corps benefitted continually from his presence.

Jean was a wonderful woman. We met 25 years ago when I moved to the area and joined a quilting group and remained my close friend even after quilting group disbanded. She was a wonderful mentor for quilting and all areas of life for me. We shared having been natives of New York and how much we had in common despite generation difference. She always wanted to help others and devoted much of her time to her church and family, She was a hard working, courageous woman with an interesting life and great faith. I will miss her but remember her with love. Rest in Peace my dear friend.

Bob was such a sweet-natured, optimistic, gentle soul. His ability to connect with people was a gift and he shared it freely. He was always willing to go the extra mile for the Art Institute of Virginia Beach students, and could be counted on to lend a hand whenever needed by the staff and faculty as well. I will miss our frequent chats in the gallery, his warm hellos as he passed by, and his little giggle when something struck him as funny.

Bob Allen was one of the greatest people I have had the privilege to know. He was genuinely a great soul. When I was having a bad day he would always talk with me and help me sort things out. This was outside of teaching me to be a better photographer and person. As I mourn with my former professors, fellow classmates and now colleagues, I will always remember Bob for his kindness and acceptance. I will cherish our conversations about life and how to see the beauty in it. My heart hurts and I am deeply saddened by his passing. I know I shall see him again someday because to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Rest In Paradise Bob. Thank you for everything you’ve taught me over the last few years. Thank you for your belief in the person I was and the person I could be.

Bob was one of the most genuine, caring and thoughtful people I've had the pleasure to meet. I will miss his gentle, smiling (yet mischievous-looking) manner brightening up the hallways of Ai and will also miss our discussions regarding teaching strategies and exchange of ideas that were often started in the break room...continued into the hallway and into the doorway of our classrooms. As he said, "to be continued" until the next time. Bob will be missed but not forgotten. My heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones.

Annette and Josh, I'm sorry for your loss. Everything you expressed in the intro is so true of Bob. I'm a better person for having known and worked alongside of him at The Pilot and on several freelance jobs. Sharing his last name turned some heads on a number of occasions. He photographed my Allen family 25+ years ago and I had the privilege of assisting him on several freelance shoots we did together for the officers and non-commissioned officers of the Virginia National Guard. Annette, I'm grateful too to have also spent concentrated time with you and Josh in your home. Those remain fond memories for me as well. I'm comforted with the certainty that Bob and I will share sweet fellowship once again when I have the privilege of joining him in heaven. Please know my heart aches for you both as you grieve this abrupt separation from a Godly husband, father and friend. Please feel free to reach out at any time if you need anything.

As a new educator, his advice and friendship were essential in my growth, and I will be forever grateful to him. I am deeply grieved to learn of his passing, but find such joy in knowing that he is with his God and King. I hope that I can one day be to a new educator what he was to me. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart

Marlene was one of the kindest and sweetest soul that I know. I loved her laugh and talking to her in general. God has taken an Angel on earth and took her back to heaven. She was one of my best volunteers at the Currituck Senior Center. I am praying for the family's comfort during this time.

My first encounter with Brittany was a meeting in the hallway at the CSB. She greeted me with the most beautiful smile. This was the first day we met. My job was to advocate for Brittany so that she could have the life that she wanted despite her disabilities. She was very vocal about her wants and needs and made sure that we all was attentive (LOL). Brittany always made sure that she gave me a hug and a smile with each encounter until she wasn't able to in April 2019. At the time that she was hospitalized she was a warrior. She fought each day to prove that she was meant to be here with us all. I was in awe of her determination and I made sure that I witness her journey from a hospital bed to rehabilitation. The last time that I saw Brittany she was talking, smiling and excited to show me that she could walk again. She looked at me funny when she saw the tears that welded in my eyes. She asked me why I was crying and I told her because I just witnessed the miracle of God. Before I left her that day I gave her the biggest hug and kiss on the cheek. The last moment I had with her she left me with her smile. I will forever adore and miss you Brittany. Keep smiling Beautiful Girl!

Ernie was my "shipmate." We actually didn't serve aboard a ship together, but we were stationed together in Mechanicsburg PA in the early 1980s along with Jim Schweitz who has posted his memories of Ernie. Ernie was my mentor when we both worked on very large computer procurement projects. He was extremely bright but also very humble, and went the extra mile to help me with my project. He also led the way for me when I retired from the navy and became a contractor with NAVMASSO in Chesapeake. He was a friend I could rely on to always give me the "straight skinny." My wife Danna and I also enjoyed our times with Jeannie, Todd and Paige. What a wonderful family! We will greatly miss Ernie, and our hearts go our to his family.

It has been two months and I miss you so much that it feels like a punch to the stomach when a memory hits me. All the things we did and still wanted to do bring smiles and tears. I am still waking up expecting to see you or hear you and yet our home is so quiet and empty. You are and will always be wife and true love.

Joel was a terrific mentor and source of strength through my season. Incredibly calm, encouraging and optimistic, I know that he is in Heaven watching us now. I'll endeavor to make you proud Joel. I am blessed to have known you and I will see you again one day! God Bless Joel!

Willie and I pledged together and were among a memorable group of senior ROTC Cadets inducted into the National Society of Scabbard and Blade. When we marched, Willie was always out in front, carrying the guidon / flag that displayed our identity. Appropriately he was our leading star. Many of us had bonded during our weeks at Summer Camp at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Military service separated all of our cadet class, but we all had a great experience and lots of fun. I regret not having kept in touch with Willie over the years, but I know he will be missed by many. May he rest in peace with our Lord Jesus Christ.

We're so thankful we knew him and that he was a part of our lives. We are grateful for his friendship and the laughter through the years. You are in our prayers. With our love.

I had the honor of serving with him on two of the finest warships in the Navy. As an FC1 on the Cape St. George and again several years later on the Preble. We got to ride motorcycles a couple times together. I remember him telling a story about taking off on a ride from San Diego to clear his head and the next thing he new he was in Las Vegas. He always had words of wisdom for me almost every time we talked. I will miss you shipmate. Fair winds and following seas. Praying for your family and I know you have found peace.

I had the good fortune to work with Ernie in the Navy, and for him in the DoD contract world. He was the consummate professional who was dedicated to providing the best products and services to our nation’s military as well as creating and sustaining the best work environment for his employees. Our oldest girls had the pleasure of playing soccer and being friends with Todd and Paige when we shared Navy duty in Mechanicsburg, PA. My wife Sue and I enjoyed many social engagements with Ernie and Jeannie, and our entire family thoroughly enjoyed being reunited with them at the Outer Banks each year. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Andrews family, and we share deeply in your loss.

It was an absolute pleasure having you as a neighbor and a co-worker. There’s so much I’m going to miss; the fist bumps in the p-ways, chatting at my desk, and weekend morning conversation/advice you would share on your porch. I’m a better JO because of you. We would joke with my 7 yr old son, asking if he had a secret clearance because, in your words “you’re about to hear some classified shit.” and laugh. Landyn brings it up all time. My wife and I talk about the day we both went into your house and you were SO proud to show us Krista and Elizabeth little hand molds in the glass case, how much your eyes lit up talking about them. You were so proud of them. We miss you Joel. Rest easy my friend!

Words cannot express how we all feel right now; however I will leave some good memories. One night on duty you asked me to come down to the HT shop to help you with a project where we went though all of MR2's cutting tips to machine out the primer in the round that would soon house the Chiefs coin in the mug you would make. Here is one for Mike Jones. Mike decided to prank Joel by I believe tin foiling his coffee mug so of course there had to be retaliation. Next night on duty I went to the commissary on base and bought jello. The next morning we served Mike his coffee mug encased in a jello mold on a silver platter with wiped cream around the bottom of it. Finally, Joel was my liberty buddy along with Kevin and John through my last deployment. I believe we damn near drank the entire South Pacific out of beer...well at least we gave it our best shot. Ill see you again my friend. I wish I had not been so distant these past couple of years. RIP Brother! Lisa I am so very sorry.

Picking one memory is impossible when there are so many to choose from. For some reason walking like a bird and yelling “mine” is coming to mind.

You are going to be missed by many Joel, myself included. I hope you are able to rest easy brother.

Eddie was such an adorable little boy when I first met him in Philly Navy housing when my parents lived next door to the Banos. My family stayed very close with the Banos through all these (50) years since and my Mom and Rose are still very close friends. I was the older college girl home for the summer but sure loved spending time playing with Eddie, Cindy and Lennie, even babysitting; but I do think my younger sisters did most of that. Later I was happy to reconnect with the Banos and learn about Eddie’s love of baseball, and I often saw him at a Tides game at Harbor Park. My love is with you Rose, Cindy and Lennie, and Eddie’s Angie and Maddie. God bless and keep you all safe and help you get through this sadness, remembering all the wonderful times you had with your son, brother, husband, father. He was a great man and we will all miss him a lot. Mom sends her love, as do my five sisters. Peace be with you. God bless you.

A candle for you... From now on everytime I light a candle I will think of you... I grieve for our mother who should never have to go through the agony of losing a child. I grieve for Michelle who has spent the better part of her life loving you, hating you, cursing you, forgiving you, and believing in you through it all. I grieve for Joshua and Jaydon who will not have you to turn to for the much-needed wisdom only a father can give a son. I grieve for Caila and Haylee who will not have the pride and joy of you walking them down the aisle. I grieve for you and all the things in life that you had not yet been able to partake in. I grieve for myself who has lost my baby brother. My grief comes in waves, with each memory. My memories are all that I have now and they make me laugh and cry and everything in between. I was 5 when you were born. Old enough to remember everything. I remember you in our mother’s womb kicking my little hand when I placed it on her stomach; before you had even joined us in this world I loved you. I remember you crawling and walking and growing into the most charming, infuriating, sweet, caring, mischievous, brave, loyal, loving little boy. Did I say mischievous and charming? Oh the charm, it just oozed from you. I remember a little boy who wanted to grow up to be Jose Canseco. You lived and breathed sports. Who slid into 3rd base while playing baseball in our yard and hit a T-post that tore open your knee and we had to go to the E.R. for a torn ligament. It didn’t slow you down, crutches and all. Who wouldn’t stay out of the tree in our front yard and suffered a broken collar bone for it. Although I think on that note I should take some blame, as I climbed every tree I could find, and you always followed. Like little brothers will do. Did I mention charming? As I just now recall your laugh when you were really tickled at something, it was infectious, you were infectious. I remember the first time I ever cheered at a football game was when you were about 10 or 11 and scored your first touchdown. The play was a flea-flicker, I will never forget it. I think of the time I came to visit when I was around 19, so you had to have been 14 and we rode bikes all over the Navy housing, I think (knowing you and me, not that we ever got in trouble) we even rode into some places we weren’t supposed to go. You had grown so much since I had left home, still charming, still mischievous. Again I am hit with a memory of us playing glow keys, which no one in the world will have any idea of what that is, but it did consist of us throwing things in the house while our mother was gone. The trouble we would have gotten into. The trouble we did get into. It makes me laugh now how it really didn’t matter how many times we got each other into trouble with mom. If there was a problem with someone else we always stood up for each other. No one was going to be mean to my little brother. (well, except for me) I most remember when you took Sara and me to D.C. You had become a grown man with children of your own by then. You were so proud to show me all around. I think now about the little barbeque place you took us, stating that it was the best ever. I hate to tell you this little brother but Texas barbeque is hands down the best, I wish you could have tried it. The Vietnam memorial was just being built so we didn’t get to see it and I was leaving the next day but you managed to squeeze in as much as possible so that I could see all the awesome sights our nation’s capital has to offer. It was a very special day There are so many more, so many more memories… I guess that is the way it is with little brothers and big sisters. The love between a brother and sister is a special kind of love that can span every emotion good, bad, and in between but never falter. It is strong, loyal, and deep. It is forever. I love you, Steven Paul Carlstrom, today tomorrow and always.

Mary Ann and I grew up together in Ansley Park, an old section of Atlanta developed circa 1910. Living only two streets apart, we had many little girl sleep-overs. And we were in the same Brownie Troup of the Girl Scouts of America at the First Presbyterian Church. I have been searching for a photo of us as Brownies that I treasure a lot to share with you. So far, can't find it. But amazingly, I did find a March 1959 poem that Mary Ann wrote for a Westminster assembly program, and I can share that.

Michelle and Family, I was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Steve, I'd like to share my deepest condolences. My first memory of Steve is actually from a leadership perspective as I was one of his supervisors. As a manager I approached our first meeting as a way to evaluate him as a member of our team and how he could contribute to our success. It didn't take long for me to realize that he was a very charming person, he had a genuine smile and a gentle demeanor. As time went on and I worked with him I realized that he had a great work ethic and an unmistakable knack to make people laugh and feel comfortable. I actually found it humorous at times when he would work with some of the younger associates for the first time to watch their cautious demeanor turn to smiles and laughter after getting over the shock of this stocky tatoo covered man they were assigned to work with. As any great associate does he was able to lighten stressful situations while getting the job done and helped us to create a fun work environment. He excelled with all of his fellow associates young and old, new and seasoned. As a close friend of Michelle I knew a lot about Steve before I ever met him and it warmed my heart as I got to know him how much he loved and valued his family. He had a huge heart and I could tell he struggled at times on how to deal with this gift. In my mind I envision him now looking down on the family he loved so much and engulfing them in his love and protection. Rest well Steve, we will all miss you. I am honored to have been able to know you and your beautiful family. As I finish this a memory of Steve bringing HayHay to Panera to bring me some Christmas cookies comes to mind and it brings tears to my eyes.

Antoine will truly be missed. I've worked with him for many years and he had a quality and demeanor that went a long way in touching the hearts and minds of all the people he dealt interacted with. He brought a positive energy into the day and was always ready to hear a story and give some sage advice from the heart. It was much like having an uncle or grandpa around to confide in.

One Sabbath after church, Wilhelmina invited my three children and me to her home for the first time. She must have sensed that we had kindred spirits. We didn't know what we would be doing but we were thrilled to spend time with her. My mom and their grandmother was no longer with us and Wilhelmina treated us just like we were her immediate family members. We ate, played games, had worship, watched movies and enjoyed each others company. Not once did my children complain about wanting to be with their friends. We were all perfectly content. We had so much fun that time was not a concern until the movie ended. Then we found out how late it was. Wilhelmina was concerned about us being out so late because it was after midnight. Just imagine all those different ages getting along so lovingly. She made a place for all of us to sleep. We all slept peacefully. In the morning we had breakfast and headed home at some point. It was the beginning of many Sabbath afternoons with Wilhelmina. I look forward to see her again in heaven.

I worked for Ed at the NEXCOM Help Desk for most of eleven years. I found him to be an excellent supervisor in an exceedingly demanding position. Additionally, he was a consummate gentlemen who was thought highly of by his staff. Thankfully, he left an excellent legacy for others to carry forward. Sincerest condolences to Angie, Madison and the extended family. Greg Selby

Mary Ann and I became friends in third grade at Westminster because our parents wanted us to be but then we became fast friends and I would spend the night at her house, both at Ansley Park and West Paces Ferry, because we did not have enough beds at my house to share. There was always so much going on at the Kilpatrick home, fun, action and good manners. It was wonderful to catch up with her when we were putting together our class reunion book. The picture of her family showed a very handsome and happy family. I send my warmest best wishes to her family with the thought that we were all so lucky to have known and loved her.

Joe, we were so saddened to hear of Ann's passing. We enjoyed knowing her over the many years we were all friends. I remember the good times we had while living across the street from each other in housing at Fort Eustis. Ann had a lively spark of life, and would always tell you "Like it is!" She will be missed by many, many people.

I was a close friend of Mary Ann’s during high school years at Westminster, and regrettably, had lost touch with her over these many years. How sad to “find” her at the time of her death! It is with sweet nostalgia that I remember being a guest, so warmly welcomed, in that beautiful home on West Paces Ferry, and even spending time with the Kilpatrick family when they summer-vacationed at Ponte Vedra! I look at her picture now and see that same beautiful girl whose friendship I so treasured through high school years. My sympathy to your family at this time; I am sure she will be much missed.

Such a man as Ed will never truly be gone, for he has left such a loving presence in our hearts. I often would stop and ask how he was doing when I would see him on my walks around the building parking lot and he would reply "good" he never seemed down. Seemed like a normal day to him. I admired and learned a great lesson in humbleness from him. Although no words can take away the sorrow that you bear. May it be comforting to you to know that the loss of Ed is felt by many.

Kimberly (Herring) King - VR-56 Loadmaster posted on 5/30/20

Please know that Dan was just a wonderful friend. He really knew the plane and I know he worked very hard when I was stationed with him in VR-56. Just a fun memory of Dan, he was told they wanted him to fly on Super Bowl weekend. In fact the flight was the day of the Super Bowl. He went to Operations and warned them that if they made him fly, he would find a way to down the plane and they would never figure out how or what happened. Calling his bluff, they scheduled him anyhow and sure enough, we didn't fly that day. Maintenance Control could not figure how what he did but we didn't fly. It is just a fun memory of Dan of a flight we didn't take. I will say prayers for Dan as well as the family. God bless you Dan and thank you for glorious memories of better days.

Angela and Madison, I am very sorry that you lost a wonderful husband and a father. Ed had an impact on my life too. Ed conducted my interview when I applied for a job with NEXCOM. He made a decision to hire me and became my first supervisor. He always showed appreciation for a job well done, but also could point out if something was wrong. I remember Ed telling me that I sometimes come across as arrogant in my interactions with help desk staff. He did it in such a way that it didn’t offend me but rather made me try to be more considerate of my co-workers. I continued to rely on Ed’s advice long after I was transferred to another manager. He was a smart and kind man. He will be missed by many at NEXCOM.

You were my shadow! You and Mindy both. You were my Drina drop and I gave that name to you because of how big your tear drips were when you cried ( which broke my heart). I hate that you left us so soon cuz I wasn’t done teaching you sis. I know God had something better in place for you and your no longer fighting any of those demons. You will always have my heart sis and I will forever cherish the time we had together! I love you forever and a day.

Nana was one of the most influential people in my life and I cant quite figure out how I am supposed to say goodbye to her. She’s at peace now and we are all able to take small comfort in that but this is all still so very hard. I have been trying to hold it together because these kids should not witness my grief on top of their own but I’m struggling. My nana is the first person I would have gone to for advice on being a mother, temporary or otherwise. She had 5 kids and 12 grandchildren and even when I was little I admired the kind and patient presence she had about her. I never once heard her raise her voice or speak an unkind word about anyone. Even with so many family members at her house for holidays, she’d find a way to make each of us feel special and loved by her. They were little things, but they meant the world. During family dinners, she’d always quietly place the mashed potato bowl in front of my plate, knowing that I’d eat at least five helpings. To this day, I can’t find a way to make them taste the same. Whenever people ask me if I want kids I always say 0 or 5, no in between. This was all because of her. I would say zero because I saw the wonderful and selfless way she took care of her family and was not sure if I’d ever measure up. And yet I said 5 because she raised her kids with such grace and love that even now I admire the bond my dad and his siblings have between them. I wanted that big family with strong ties and still do. Maybe, in a strange, strange way I’m just now realizing, that is why I said yes to these kiddos. I wish I could tell her all about them. I know she would love them as much as I do. After my nana suffered a stroke several years ago, I felt that we’ve been losing her in slow motion. I was blessed enough to have been one of her caretakers for the last few years and, though I missed how she was from before, I got to know her in a new and different way. Most of the time we would sit in silence while I held her hand or she’d watch me while I went about my day. Other days, she’d be struck by a sudden bout of chattiness that was uncharacteristic of her even from before the stroke. During these times she would ask for her late husband or speak about my dad, my aunts and uncle as if they were still children. The amount of love that she had for her family, even after she had lost such an important piece of herself, was astounding. She would tell me stories of her kids or of us grandchildren and her eyes would just light up. Even though she did not always know who I was during these times, I could tell she was revisiting a happier time and we would enjoy the bittersweet nostalgia together. I will always, always wish I could have had just one more talk with her. I don’t know how to say goodbye.

Dear Patti, I'm writing to you from Roanoke where I still live, but I'm regularly in touch with Mick"Jellyfish" Henahan and "Bambi", so I've been in a state of disbelief since they sent me the news.. I'm so sorry for your loss and wanted to let you know my thoughts and prayers go out to you on a regular basis.. I will definitely miss Gallagher on a large order, as a friend and as an "Angler".. For me the two of y'all are such a fixture of the beach, each time I return to visit I would always know if I stayed or walked the beach in your area I could count on seeing the two of you, weather permitting, in your chairs reading near the water's edge.. I sincerely hope in the future you'll continue that hallowed tradition, for I can assure you, I will certainly come by and visit with you.. Among the many illustrious characters within the "71st Street Anglers", the "Prez" certainly takes the cake, sporting his sometimes cantankerous disposition and then at other times a genuine love and appreciation for a fellow "Angler" and a friend.. When this quarantine and all the social distancing started I would chuckle to myself thinking, Gallagher was practicing that long before the rest of the world..If ever I would try to hug him in public he would shrink back and shout out, "Don't touch me Snapper, don't touch me!" Of course that would prompt me to say, "Aww come on Tommy", which would in turn send him into a tizzy with his retort of, "Don't call me Tommy!" I must say it was always a truly irresistible, endearing and hilarious exchange with ironically, a totally affable and lovable guy.. I will sorely miss him..Rest well Gallagher.. Take care Patti, stay safe and if there's anything I can do to help, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Your friend, "Snapper" Timothy Shepherd

Marcus you brought such love, laughter and light to our family. And our tears are sweet because time cannot steal the treasure of our memories of you. I will especially treasure my memories of you as a young child wide-eyed and full of wonder, curious, sensitive, and full of fun. Although distant in location with the help of technology your life was never far away from our hearts and allowed us to keep in contact and share your adventures as you grew into a young man with a spirit and soul so full of love To me family means maintaining precious connections and I know that bond is unbreakable and will endure forever. Your time with us taught me about the power of family, shared emotions, compassion and that when we struggle there is still beauty to be uncovered. Forever family Love as always Mark & Heidi

I have known Anne for over 50 years, she had a heart of gold and helped so many families. If more people were like her, this world would be so much better. She was a gentle, strong and loving person. If she decided to make or do something she would say "My god, I can do that." and she would do it. I will miss her and she was my hero.

Marcus and I met when he was 11 and I was 12. I remember seeing him for the first time, with his big hair and smile. We gave each other our house numbers, and talked almost every single night. We developed a brother and sister relationship, and that's what made it so special. Because it was never more then that. We could have sleepovers and talk about literally everything and our relationships. I would walk miles to hang out behind Walmart and Hotline while he skated. When we got older, we stayed in Richmond for a little while. With our relationship we would fight, even though it got bad, we would never say sorry. We would just look at each other, and give a hug, and never spoke about it again. Know matter were life brought us, when we saw each our brother and sister relationship was the exact same from when we met when we were 11 and 12. I love you so much Marcus, you were so much more then anyone I've ever met. I will miss you every single day.

Stroma and I Supervised together for about 14 years. I consider her a true pioneer in more ways than one. A good example was, we would go to parties with our "Black" brothers and sisters in police fire and rescue, were the only white faces there although all were invited. We had a ball and rock our socks off with our folks! I got to meet two of Stromas sisters Who are just as delightful! She loved her Queen, and made the best Shortbread every Christmas I have ever eaten. ( She used a quarter lb. of butter in every pound she made. I was shocked to hear of her death since she was so full of life. .To your family, I can only say, rest easy with the knowledge that she is at peace with our "God', and I will always enjoy the good thoughts of our lives with her. We shall all meet again!

After retirement, Diana and I would often run into Royce either at Walmart, Krogers, or the gun shows and catch-up on recent events for laughs.

Aunt Eve was one of our favorite people in the world. Family was the most important thng to her, especially keeping those connections strong. We would look forward to her annual trip to Newfoundland every year where she would share many stories and photos of her family of whom she was very proud, and with good reason. Not only was she a wonderful mother, grandmother and aunt, she was also a strong woman who was ahead of her time with a keen interest in public affairs, social justice, and community. During her visits here in NL, we especially enjoyed wathcing the news with her to see a fresh, highly informed and intelligent perspective on the world. Aunt Eve was one of a kind and will be deeply missed. Our love and symapthy to all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Michele, Russ, Jagger and Breck

We enjoyed our neighbourhood walks ,hanging laundry and her fabulous home cooking especially her chocolate cake that magically appeared from her freezer . We had long chats and laughter and shared recipes except that chocolate cake ! She was more like my older sister than an aunt ! We will miss her deeply !

I spent many days at Mrs. Jackson’s house. She taught me how to bake cookies, and how to use a kitchen timer. When I lost my first born child, she knew how much I was grieving the loss and how overwhelmed I was having a huge hospital bill. She stopped by my Mom’s house and left me a beautiful card with comforting words, and a $500 check to help pay my hospital bill. She was always so kind and compassionate. She was a second mom to me, and she will be sorely missed.

I have known her for over 37 years. She has been the best mother-in-law anyone could ask for. We were fortunate to live very close to her all those years. She has always been delightful to talk to. She was a wonderful grandmother to my girls and her other 10 grandkids. I was also fortunate to work with her for several months taking care of her husband before he passed and having her stay in our home for weeks at a time. She didn't say much but when she did she would smile and laugh. She will be greatly missed. I know she is a better place. Love Renee,

Condolences to Scotty's daughters who were the stars of her life & to all her family. I worked with Scotty for 20 years at the 911 EOC. As others have mentioned, Scotty was a powerful force and one of the strongest women I've ever met. But Scotty also could be a soft and caring friend. We shared a common thread at nearly the same time, and we shared our experiences with each other. She was a cheerleader with an optimism that paved a path to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Scotty was "that friend" who always lent her shoulder to lean on and understood the emotions when they welled up. Thank you Scotty. I don't believe she left many stones unturned She lived life to its fullest and traveled a good part of our world. Whatever lays beyond our mortal life, I'm sure she will be traveling full force ahead. Peace be with her family and friends.

What an amazing woman. She is a true example of warriors are made of. I will treasure my memories of Scotty. To quote a verse from the last card She sent to me,"Warm thoughts can make the sun a little brighter, the sky a little bluer, the world a little nicer. Just a note to let you know how much you're in my thoughts and heart right now..." You and your family are in my thoughts and heart as well... Your laughter and tales of the places you have visited warmed my heart and made me want to buy a ticket to the next adventure. Mostly, we shared "Nana Stories". She LOVED being a Nana. From one Nana to another I felt a kinship. I will miss our talks. My friend, You will forever hold a special place in my heart.

Sharon and I moved next door to Coy on Saint Louis St in KDH at the beginning of 2018, and remain friends--and fellow KHUMC members--even now as he has moved to Brookdale in Elizabeth City. We never got to meet Hunter, but I know he was a great guy from so many of the tributes. As a former Army officer, I especially recognize and appreciate his service to America. We pray God's peace and comfort will come, if gradually, upon every member of this fine young man's family.

Her and James' love was better than any love story ever written, they were truly as one.

He was very well spoken and you could tell he was a confident young Man. Nancy and I were both taken back as we just learned of your loss and definitely would have been at Hunter's service to support you all had we known. We will keep you both in our prayers!

Hunter was always lively, smart and never missed a beat. I got to know Hunter as I babysat him when he was around the age of 6. He definitely kept me on my toes, but I loved every second of it. I remember sitting with him on the couch in his living room, watching TV, when George W Bush was running for president (the 1st time) and I was so shocked to see how aware he was of the election and of Bush. And I always laugh when I look back on my first time babysitting him and he locked me outside his house, after I had to clean him off from getting all muddy outside. Haha.... he ran to the front door and gave me a look and quickly shut the door. We looked at each other through a window for a few minutes, then he opened the door. I was scared to death then, thinking Jacqui and Jeff will never let me babysit again, but I babysat many times and got to watch Jackson as an infant, grow into a toddler and babysat them both before I went off to college. My heart breaks for his young and beautiful wife, his mother, father, brother grandparents, family members and friends. He grew to be such a handsome young man and I just don't understand why he was taken away at such a young age. An age where adult life is just beginning and you're coming into your own, but I lean not to my own understanding, I lean on God's. God knows what He is doing and He needed to call Hunter on home. God bless you Nicole, Jacqui, Jeff, Jackson and family. Only time and God will help you carry on. You all have my love and deepest sympathy.

I still find it hard to believe that you're gone, bro! I first met Mo in the summer of 2016, while we were on TDY out in WA state and we were immediately drawn to each other as if we had known each other forever. Maybe it's his innate nature, because he was like this to everyone. I remember him convincing me to visit my first gun show while we were there, resulting in me buying my first rifle. He was just that kind of person! Kind, thoughtful, and very transparent. Since then, we have kept in touch and even after I left the organization we would run into each other sometime and always had a minute to laugh at something. I know he will be missed by all, but this is a road that we will all have to travel one day. Condolences to his family and friends and may his soul sleep in peace!

It was an honor to work with Mo. I only got to work with him for the last couple of months but in that short time I considered him a friend. When I first started working he was a great support and encouragement to me. Traveling to Yuma with him and Michael was a blast. Full of long days, laughter, spicy food, antique malls and burritos, of course. Every morning at work I would go for a morning stroll to stop by and say hi to Mo. His joy was contiguous and a blessing He will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to you all during this time. Praying for you all!

I am sorry for your family loss. I am still in disbelief every time I see the garage open I expect to see him and Michael building another project. I have had the best neighbors ever for the past 4 years. Moe was always there to help me when my house starting falling apart or we sit outside and express our frustration on how we fix one thing a find 6 other things wrong. I miss him laughing with me and at me (especially when I got stuck on the roof of my house) but he help me get down of course. He was a kind person, loving father and it was a privilege to know him, Lora, Michael, Kayla, and Savannah.

We met Moe early in 2018 as he was part of the Army’s Ft. Eustis team that integrated ALTIUS and its C2/launch systems into the UH-60. Specifically, Moe was in charge of all the wiring for these integration efforts, which was no small task. He was meticulous, thorough, good natured, and patient with us (especially as we would repeatedly try to blame his wiring for malfunctions that would inevitably be found to be OUR fault). Through countless hours on the range, he was always a joy to work with, and we were always excited to see him. During the “wait” times of the inevitable hurry-up-and-wait, he’d speak fondly of his wife, daughters, and son Michael (with whom we also had the pleasure of working). On more than one stressful, early YPG morning, he bailed me out of a “Pop-Tart Breakfast” with a Pancho’s Burrito (if you know, you know). Those small acts of kindness meant the world to me. Moe, I promise that no Area-I employee will drive past Pancho’s without knowing your name. To Lora, we thank you for the many months you let him spend with us, please know that he made a difference. For us at Area-I, business is personal and we will be forever grateful for the role Moe played in our successes. To Moe, we shed some tears and let out a collective, “Ooooh Daaamn” in your memory. We will miss you.

My greatest sympathies and condolences to the Mosebrook family, and to all those Mo touched in his life. Mo was by far, one of the best people I have had the honor and pleasure of knowing and working with. He was kind, caring, loving, hilarious, helpful, hard working, dedicated, and like stated - he had an infectious personality. I was fortunate enough to work with Mo for the last decade or so, and can't tell you how much fun I had with him on our countless travels across the country and endless weeks and months spent on test ranges to test various systems for the Army. He was a go-to kind of man, knowing everything, fixing everything, and making our work successful. He made the work absolutely fun - no matter how tedious or cumbersome it became. I will miss the evening drink with him while on on travel, his enormous embarrassing man-hugs, our inevitable attempts to out-embarrass each other, and the constant gut wrenching laughs. I will miss his stories, his jokes, his friendship. The Army will sorely miss his leadership, his knowledge, his dedication, and his work ethic. Mo - I look forward to the day I get another bear hug from you in Heaven!

Dearest Audra, Tyler and Family, I was saddened to learn that Brian had lost His battle with cancer, but He has earned His Wings in Heaven! I pray that You may find some comfort in Your Precious Memories that He has left in each of You and in knowing that You will see Him again, for this is a promise that GOD has made for US if we only believe in HIM, We shall have Life after Death. I was so sorry to even learn that Brian had Lung Cancer like my Brother in Law, this is such a horrible disease, but we know now that Brian suffers no more. He is now free of his disease and in this, may we find some comfort in knowing Brian is now walking with no more affliction. And while we will miss the Brian we all know and love, we find comfort in knowing that he is no longer in any pain or suffering. Rest Forever in Paradise Brian, until we all meet again. AMEN

I first met Cary in 1999 when I started working at contractors Paving... he was one of the best bosses I ever had even though he was strict in many ways but that's how he was and that's what made him a great boss... friend and he was also like a father figure to me in a sense.... I've never met anybody that worked as hard as he did.... he will be missed by many and remembered by more... my thoughts and condolences go out to the family..love you guys.

I didnt get a chance to work with Moe much but he would come by the shop from time to time and we would just chit chat about pretty much anything. If he needed something around the shop we would work it out or if we needed something from the hangar or airfield we would help each other out. His friendly and calm demeanor made it a pleasure to be around during work or just a good oh' command cookout. Moe will be missed but not forgotten. My heart goes out to all family and friends during this time of loss. R.I.P Moe and Ride on to the Heavens my brother.

We only got to share a brief moment in time at your granddaughter’s birthday party in November. We talked mostly of our faith and our families. Your heart for the Gospel message and the love for our Lord and Savior was so inspiring. You knew at that time that life in this world was soon to end. Some may have been bitter and angry with God but not you. You boldly proclaimed your love for our Lord and in the faith in our life to come in eternity. I know our Lord has welcomed you home with open arms and has proudly proclaimed well done my true and faithful servant. Well done. Until we meet again our brother ❤️

You knew our small Grandsons before we knew you Kelly, as you worked in a Daycare. Always loved to be a part of a kids life and so that job was for you. Being told you'd never have children of your own never stopped your dream of a family. We became a part of your Family by chance and always felt like part of the family or Village people as I always called this Large group of people in your family,that grew and grew. Your Sisters were thrilled to learn of their pregnancies and then a Miracle, you got pregnant! Not once but twice with two lovely Daughters to complete the impossible, giving you that family you Prayed for. Both times were not easy, and the Lord almost took you. The second was worst and you and the baby struggled. But again the Lord got you though. You raised your family for a short time and then was taken before your time. We'll never know why but we know you gave those girls the best of you. You were their Hero and left your foot prints behind. RIP dear Kelly, me and John were Blessed to have known you.

Sally and I were West Point classmates and teammates on the Women's cross country and track teams. We ran many miles together often tired and sore. We competed in cold and heat, in rain and snow. We loved to run. As we ran together, we encouraged one another and our teammates. This was how we survived the adversity we each faced as being among the first women to graduate from the United States Military Academy. Later as Army Captains we were stationed at Fort Riley, KS. My husband, Eddie (also a classmate) and I watched Sally's daughter, Sarah so her Mom and Dad could go on a weekend retreat. Sally was then able to be there for the arrival of my first baby, Larisa. We both left the Army and stayed in touch as we each moved to other parts of the country. Most recently about this time last year, I was visiting my daughter, Gwenyth and Sally and I got to spend most of the day together on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach. It was rainy and windy but just like we did at West Point we faced the biting cold and rain and walked for about 4 miles against the wind. We caught up on our kids and her grandchildren, who she loved so deeply. We shared our lives, our struggles, our successes and our hopes and desires. Sally asked for a copy of my book to give to a friend. She was always thinking of others. It was a day I will always remember; you see I had a friend who was more like a sister. Then only a few weeks ago, Sally reached out just when I needed her. My daughter, Larisa had complications with her pregnancy during this pandemic. Sally immediately began to pray and enlisted her prayer group as my family navigated an incredibly precarious time. Sally rejoiced with me when my grandson was born and was in the NICU. She celebrated when he was eventually released, and my daughter's health was restored. She stayed the course through the ordeal, that was the kind of person my friend Sally was. When we connected, she was optimistic and hopeful saying she had gotten a new job. I was so proud of her and congratulated her. When I heard of her passing, I could not stop weeping. I felt as though part of me had gone with this gentle soul. I had wanted more time with my “sister”, more deep conversations and more running together. Knowing we share the same faith I know that Sally is now in our Savior's arms and for that although heartbroken, I know I will see my friend again. Because of Sally's faith, I want to leave her family with words, I know she knew all too well as runners often quote this verse: "Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Virginia and her husband Elliott have been close friends since our high school days in Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, NY. I mam blessed with 70 years of fond memories of her and the many happy times our families shared, In many ways, Virginia was much more than a close friend... she was like a sister and I will miss her.

We lift you up in thought and prayer and can only hope you are given the strength to get through today, tomorrow and the days ahead. Feel our hugs.

I cavorted with Charlie at UVA decades ago. He lived down the street and was often at the door. I studied Buddhism; he read Confucius in Chinese. He was a sparkling, gregarious musical sprite (albeit a large one)! An inveterate Stevie Winwood fan: “If for just one moment / You could step outside your mind / And float across the ceiling / I don't think the folks would mind.” As luck would have it we met again three years ago through a mutual friend and struck up a band. Our Tuesday practices in his pool house were the highlight of my week. The music was always interesting; the merriment and wit equally so. I remember fondly: once while rehearsing a song, Charlie and Donna spontaneously began reciting long stretches of Shakespeare back and forth over the PA to each other. They were clearly still in love after 40 years of marriage. And after practices there were the long private conversations by the pool; arcane, profound, hilarious, somber. His was an educated and mercurial wit. He cherished nuance. And he was jovial in the classical sense of the word: “like Jove”: merry, grand, magnanimous, kingly. Each time I departed we had a good long hug. Beyond what was said was what was unsaid. Charlie was an irreplaceable soul mate, and I will miss him.

Sarah! I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers! I can't imagine going through this in the midst of everything happening in the world.

Don was an amazing man. He gave so much of himself to volunteer his time to St. Thomas and it’s outreach. I remember his kind and gentle spirit at game night, spaghetti dinners, and car washes just to name a few. His guidance and friendship will forever be cherished. His legacy lives on in his incredible son and his amazing wife. Sending you love, prayers, and sweet memories to carry you through this difficult time. With Love, Sydney

"...I am become a name; For always roaming with a hungry heart Much have I seen and known; cities of men And manners, climates, councils, governments, Myself not least, but honour'd of them all; And drunk delight of battle with my peers, Far on the ringing plains of windy Troy. I am a part of all that I have met; ...And this gray spirit yearning in desire To follow knowledge like a sinking star, Beyond the utmost bound of human thought. (From Ulysses by Tennyson) Rarely have I had a colleague with whom I have had more thought provoking discussions about culture, literature, and life. At the simplest level every teacher asks him or herself the question, "Did I make a difference in another's life?" Rest in peace, great soul, knowing that you brought light to those of us old and young alike for whom education is not a stage in life, but a continual journey.

 

Barbara Russel posted on 5/3/20

Donna, I am so sorry for your loss. Certainly this was not in your retirement plan, or Charlie's, for that matter. I taught with Charlie at Great Bridge and was in "Fiddler" with him. He was a real character! We came out to dig up the basketball hoop at your house one miserable Good Friday. The pole was buried deep and cemented in. As we labored to get it up, Charlie came out and recited "Alas. poor Yorick." He was one of a kind, and his students were better for their experience with him. Rest in peace.

To the family, friends and loved ones of Antione Bell. I'm so sorry to hear about the home going of Antione. Like Antoine, I am also a graduate of the College at Brockport and currently a Professor in the department of Journalism, Broadcasting and Public Relations. I remember Antione form our time together in the 1980's at PBS affiliate WXXI-TV, in Rochester, New York. Antoine was a consummate professional and I couldn't have developed my career without Antoine's remarkable skill, patience and his ability to remain calm when chaos was breaking out all around him. I'm so disappointed that we lost touch with each other over the years but I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus- Antione Bell was an exceptional human being, and while I never met his family in particular his parents and wife and children, I'm certain the apple did not fall far from the trees that produced him. Please accept my deepest and most humble regards, I will remember him always, Antoine was a beautiful man. Carvin Eison

I worked with Charlie at Great Bridge High in the late 90s. Charlie was a true intellectual. I recall how light on his feet he was for such a big guy and he delighted in making me jump by suddenly appearing right beside me on hall duty. We had many good times in the 400 hall faculty lunch room. Good travels to you Charlie.

My sympathy to Mike's family for your loss. We were neighbors in Vinton, and Mike was also my classmate. Mike spent a lot of time with my brother and me playing cards, roller skating at the nearby skating rink and just hanging out. He was such a sweet person, and I have always felt badly that we lost contact over the years. I would have loved for him to know we (his classmates and especially my family) cared a lot about him and often wondered how he was doing. It is a comfort to know he had a loving family and to read such sweet condolences. My best to you, his family.

Daddy I miss you so much. What I’d do to trade places with you. Watch over us. And give us strength to make it through please. It’s so unreal. I never thought you would be gone. I’m grateful for the endless love and care you showed me and Joey. I’m glad you got to meet India. We all love and miss you. You were the best dad in the whole world couldn’t have asked for a better dad. You always went above and beyond even when you didn’t have to make us feel special. To dinner or lunch just to talk, taking us to the movies, bush gardens, and spoiling us every year. No matter what anyone says it will never be the same without you. You were our best friend our backbone. You gave the best advice. You gave the best hugs. You were always there no matter what I needed whether I was hungry or needed gas or my phone bill payed you came through. Even being 21 you made sure I was good. You were so stubborn to the doctors you meant that you were not going to miss my 21st birthday dinner. You had this talk with me last year and I took it and said yea ok. Because I wasn’t ready. I’d never be ready to loose you. I didn’t want to have the talk. I didn’t think you were going away. I thought you were invincible. I know your walking around laughing and joking up there with grandpa Carl and everyone else. I’m so glad your not sick or in pain anymore. Me and Joey will be ok eventually we just have to get used to this new normal. It’s hardest not to be able to call you and tell you about my day or what India started doing now but I know you can see it all. And your right here with us.

I know it’s been rough these past couple of years. April and Joey will be fine and when India is older we will tell her about you. I’m glad you got a chance to meet her.

I never got the Fiat back on the road Ed. I think the radio is still stashed somewhere below. However, the puppy (Bear) we got from you and Marg lived with us for 17 years. That more than made up for the car. To you Sailor, I salute you and thank you for your service. May you now have fair winds and calm seas forever! To Marg and all of the family, we send our deepest condolences and pray for all of you, for your peace.

To the Families of Gary Venters, We were sitting here thinking about the loss of our loved one, Gary. He will be deeply missed. But there is hope. The big question is: Does death end it all? The answer is no. According to Job 14:14,15, Job asked: "If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service until my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." The faithful man Job had confidence and faith in the resurrection and that in God's due time, God would awaken him from sleep. We have lost so many of our relatives in death and we just want to be there to welcome them back to life on a paradise earth. That will be a joyful family reunion.

Kevin was a warm and wonderful man. I remember when he was a student teacher and was so excited when he got a permanent position at GRMS. He made me laugh everyday when he came to the office. Most importantly he was good to his students. Bev, you and your family are in my prayers.

 

Barbara Lynn Daise posted on 4/23/20

To say the least, Kevin was truly loving, kind, humorous and dedicated to even his most challenging endeavors. Once learning of my need to transition at risk students in special education, he volunteered to co-teach history to students who are intellectually disabled. These students flourished, not only academically, but emotionally, because of Kevin’s strategic ability to magnify the true meaning of inclusion in his classroom’s environment. I will truly miss his enthusiastic morning greeting as he passed my classroom’s doorway, “Good morning Mrs. Daise.” Regretfully, we will no longer share an encouraging greeting that began our school day; yet, my students and I will remember our shared journey with a man who embodied the love of an Almighty God. Rest in peace thy good and faithful servant. Until we meet again, to God be the Glory!

James and Pamela Dumont posted on 4/22/20

We met Kevin in the foyer of the Assembly of God church in Erie, PA in 1981. We had both recently graduated from Bible School in Tulsa, OK. Kevin had returned to Erie and Pam and I were living in a tent in Cassady's Campground with our 3 yr old son having left our home in Maine to pursue God's call. Kevin and I were wearing similar jackets which immediately drew us towards each other. There we made our acquaintance. We very soon came to appreciate Kevin's gifts, intelligence and great wit. I was with him in 1983 as we sat together at breakfast at Elby's restaurant and decided to take the leap of faith to begin Grace Fellowship International Church. Kevin was greatly gifted and anointed. Observing Kevin was, as the Bible says, to see the manifestation of "treasure within an earthen vessel". It was to see the excellency of the power of God at work through His chosen vessel (II Cor 4:7). Our deepest sympathies are with the entire Nuber family. Until we are united once again in His presence, always remember II Corinthians 5:7, "For we walk by faith, not by sight."

Corban Nuber posted on 4/22/20

From a Son to his Father I'm writing this today in celebration of the life of my father, Kevin Nuber. Many people may not be aware that he was fighting a battle with cancer, or find it shocking how quickly that battle ended. Unfortunately in my father's case cancer came in like the Mordor Orcs over running Osgiliath. This is a Lord of the Rings reference, one of his favorite film franchises. Kevin loved movies, it was one thing that no matter what was going on in our lives he and I could bond over. Quoting lines and throwing out references was normal parts of conversation for us. Not everyone caught on though as many of his students would say. He always got a kick out of quoting old movie lines and having his students look at him dumbfounded. Teaching was a major part of my father's life. He's been a teacher at Greenbrier Middle school for over 10 years. I know he loved it and loved his students, through the story's he's told me and meeting some of his former students after high school. All spoke of him fondly. Prior to teaching he was a Pastor. Which he would say was very similar and just as challenging. He loved the Lord and loved sharing that with others in his ministry. Many people will remember him in these rolls. Remember him in the way he touched their lives in the church or in the classroom. Remember him for is advise or his humor. But for me he will always just be Dad. I love Pop, forever and always.

I had the distinct pleasure, of meeting a friend, and colleague in the ministry,by way of Minister Nuber. I have much to say about him, but let the work that he has done speak for him. I will miss his voice saying,"Good morning Bishop" as he walked down the hallways of Greenbriar Middle School. To the family I leave my condolences, and I embrace his memories. God bless.

Dear Bobbie, Also on behalf of Ray Winkel I want to offer my sincerest condolences to you and your family. I enjoyed reading The Kraut and getting to know a lot about Eric's life and adventures. What an interesting man he was! I'll pray for you that the Good Lord will give you strength to cope with this loss.

I had the privilege of knowing Kevin (whom we affectionately called PK for Pastor Kevin) at Grace Fellowship Church. He was an inspired and inspiring teacher, a gifted musician and worship leader, and above all, a kind and good man. I am very sad he left this world so young, but know he must be overjoyed to be in the presence of the Lord whom he loved so much.

Rev. Kevin Nuber 1957 - 2020 My youngest brother, Kevin, passed away early this morning in Chesapeake, Va. after a short illness. Although he had been struggling mightily for several months and enduring painful shuttles between a hospital and a nursing home, it is less than a toss-up that he was a victim of Covid-19. The virus has, however, made it impossible for us to travel north for the traditional respect-paying, so I am forced to remember him on social media in this very trying season we find ourselves in. I was eight years older than Kevin and left home for the military at 18, so we did not bond in a traditional fashion in his early years. When recalling the impressionable moments as he grew into his late teens, two distinct scenarios come to mind. Kevin did well scholastically in high school but excelled in all things music at Harbor Creek. He had become proficient on piano and organ at home, and found it easy to transition to string bass, e-flat horn, and mellophone for Harb's band and orchestra needs. At the Spring Concert of his senior year -- following his ground-breaking performance as drum major of the marching band in the fall -- Kevin was so amazing, it was almost uncomfortable! Jeff and I were front and center in Harb's auditorium as Kevin accompanied the Girls' Chorus on one side of the stage, played string bass with the Orchestra on the other side, and then moved to the center with 5 pepband-mates and brought down the house with a full instrumental rendition of MacArthur's Park! I was so proud of him! With indications of achieving mastery on the full pipe organ, Kevin began sacred music studies at Westminster College and found a part-time position as an organist at a huge Catholic church in Youngstown, Ohio. That same year, our parents drove a small group down to that church for Christmas Eve Mass. Kevin escorted us to the rear of the sanctuary and up the stairs to the balcony where sat the largest pipe organ I had ever seen. I was seated just six feet from my little brother as he majestically played Christmas hymns, accompanied and led the singing of responses, and continually conducted and directed the multiple choirs and nativity participants as to entrances, movements, and exits -- all while seated! I was stunned. Barely a believer at that point in my life, my tears came because I thought I just might be seeing the hand of God. I had moved to Texas and shamefully remained out of correspondence with Kevin while he completed his coursework at Rhema and moved back to Erie to start a church. Later, I had the distinct privilege to be present when Kevin had his first church service in a small but freshly-painted utility room off to the side of what would become his storefront church on E. 26th St. The four other people in attendance really enjoyed it, too! I recall the evening Dad passed away at home. I knew he was ill, but it shocked me that such a great man -- a man so much more kind and loving and fruitful than I could ever hope to be -- would pass in his prime. Kevin was there, of course, and his faith, knowledge, experience and counsel was just about everything I needed to get through the longest night of my life. Our entire family not only benefited from but depended on Kevin's solid grasp of everlasting life issues and his firm grip on the rudder of the Nubers' ship during this storm. The Anchor holds. Indeed. I recall standing with extended family near the casket before moving outside to the limos at Mom's funeral. Kevin was holding a young Chad, pointing at Mom and then touching Chad's heart, undoubtedly explaining a Kingdom principle. This is where my recollections become short and sweet. I visited Kevin in New Castle (with Mom), the spider house in Indiana, York PA (with Bonnie and the girls), and Chesapeake. We spoke on the phone somewhat regularly and I always enjoyed his perspective, memory, and humor. The ailments that quite literally choked the life out of Kevin left him in a state that was incomprehensible and unacceptable. We visited him in January for five days, finding enough improvement to actually listen and converse. The day before we left, I asked him if he was prepared for the seemingly inevitable failure (in his case) of modern medicine. He looked me in the eyes, our faces six inches apart, and said, "I know what's going on." I will take that, Lord. His passing will be difficult to accept, let alone reconcile. Amid the profound understandings of his preaching and shepherd-like results of his worship-oriented ministries, there were moments of discouragement and excess. But I saw something once, and he told me it was genuine. I was pursued and then exposed to gunfire when I ran from a forest into a field with a beam of light coming down to the ground. As I arrived and raised my hands toward the light, the bullets killed my body and it fell to the ground. I started rising slowly in the light and kicked at my body below in absolute disgust. I prefer to believe that is how Kevin finally escaped that cold, heartless, lonely, stinking hospital room. Greet Dad and Mom warmly, little brother. We'll be along......

Kevin was a wonderful teacher who made history interesting with his wit and humor. It was a pleasure to work with him during the time he taught at Greenbrier Middle School. He will be missed by staff and students. Beverly, I will keep you, your sons and their families in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

We remember so many interesting moments with Eric and Bobbie. In particular, the launching of his book "Passport Not Required" at the Churchill War Rooms, London, in December 2010, followed by a brisk walk to the Army-Navy Club where drinks and conversation flowed. Eric, as always, was charming.

We are still coming to grips with Eric’s rapid departure from us all; a mixed tragedy and blessing. A tragedy because he and his loved ones had plans for the future, but a blessing to be taken peacefully. Thanks to God we were able to spend some quality time together and share a beer before Eric went to cardiac care and then to our Father in Heaven. Eric lived an incredibly challenging, fascinating, and adventurous life. We both were Vietnam War Veterans and shared a love of history, German culture and traditions, and laughter. Eric will be greatly missed by us all and our thoughts, hearts, and prayers are with Eric, Bobbie, and Family.

Kath y and God bless her she provided many a dinner or in the case of the soccer teams team dinners that the guys loved to have. I got to also enjoy Thanksgiving there on a couple of occasions and of course Kathy went out of her way with some awesome dinners.

I first met Lavinia or as I knew here, Mrs Allen, at Sunny Brook on Dec. 19, 1978, when I started working at Sunny Brook. That first day she made me feel so welcomed and comfortable in her class. She was such a wonderful teacher and just watching her with the children was such a blessing. I was and am honored to have known her and to work with her. I pray that our dear Lord and Savior grant her eternal peace with Him, our heavenly Father, the Holy Spirit, and all His angels and saints. And may He send you His angels to comfort all of you and bring you peace.

I only wish I had quizzed him more, to learn from someone who had seen and done so much and had truly lived.

Bobby and family, Erik fit more into his life than 10 normal men. He was obviously an extraordinary person and we enjoyed speaking with him whenever we got the opportunity. He was inquisitive and curious by nature which probably led to his fantastic life. Yes, the early years were tough but he weathered them well and contributed to everything he touched. We will miss him, his fantastic knowledge of all things and his great wit.

I have had the blessing to have known he and his family since he was in Middle School. He was one of my students. He was a wonderful person, bright, and well-mannered young man. He was raised in a magnificent family. When you came into his life, you allowed his happy life to extend. Thank you for what you have done for Antoine and for your children. Thank you for sharing his life with us. May the Lord Jesus continue to keep you and watch over you and your family. You were and are a beautiful woman of God. Thank you for sacrificing and for showing your children, especially your daughters what a Proverbs 31 woman is. Lauren, "Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing. But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates."

Luba was a member of Calvary Assembly of God in Virginia Beach on Providence Rd. She was kind and always positive. It was good to know someone that survived the Holocaust and immigrated to America and raised her family successfully. The other miracle I know that occurred in her life; she had a medical issue about four years ago and she was diagnosed to only live a few more months. She continued to come to church for another four years and shared her joy with the church. Luba was blessed.

Shane truly was a tough and physical football player. Every few weeks Shane would get forced to practice with the quarterbacks grumbling the entire time that he was no “glory boy”. Shane wanted to be where the action was. A great teammate!

Dear family, Antoine was loved so much by so many people. His heart was so caring and sympathetic. We all miss him now, but are assured and comforted that it’s only for a time. He really was a God-man who exhibited the kindness, love, genuiness as and humility of the Lord. We pray that each day will lessen your sorrow and the peace of Christ fill your hearts. We send our love to you all and continue praying for your consolation.

I think what I’ll miss most about Mammie is the way she always listened. No matter what I was talking about she always heard me. And her praise of “that’s real nice, Amy”, when coming from someone else might seem insincere, but from her it was so genuine. It’s something my dad says too, it’s his most heartfelt compliment. That’s how I know he really approves of something. And it’s nice to know he got that from his mama. All the family dinners at her house - her rolls and the corn pudding that no one can ever make as good as she did; Easter egg hunts when she tried to make sure all the grandkids got a special egg; going into the hall closet to get the bop-it or pogo stick; heading out on the front porch to have a chat. Our Christmas ice skating and movie trips her and Granny would take all the cousins on. I like to think her and Granny are together again, how they were always meant to be.

My heart is heavy. We have lost a truly gentle soul. I have known her for most of my life. I am not family by blood or marriage but family in the sense that I loved her dearly as she did me. She welcomed me graciously into her family many, many years ago. She was the most kind, caring and generous woman I have ever known. Rob, Patti, Jimmy and Leslie, I want to thank your for including me as part of your family. I want to thank you for sharing her with me, for sharing both of your parents with me over the last 38 years and for letting me be part of so many momentous occasions and milestones. I am honored to have known her. I am honored that my children were able to know her and she know them. My heart aches for your loss. I will miss her deeply.

To the Bell Family and Friends, it was and honor to have worked with Antoine for over 25 years! We were had a lot in common, sports, Yankees, Giants and Knicks and we could talked for hours. He was so proud of his family and we would talk about our children as they grew up right before our eyes. The video tribute was beautiful and it made me smile and brought back memories. Rest in peace my friend! You will never be forgotten! Heaven just became a little brighter!

Antoine, you are and always been a great mentor that turned in to an awesome friendship. We talked about sports, work, life and God. I will cherish these and carry them out during my life time as well. While you were away from the office and from here on out, I could always hear you coaching me through when I got stumped on a task at work. I can also hear your responses, jokes and comebacks like it was clock work. You showed me the ropes of work and the value of friendship. Thanks for being there, my brother. You will be missed! Lauren, my constant prayers will always remain for you and your family. May God Bless the rest of your journey! God has picked up a great soul as Antoine is now with the Lord and among the many Angels in heaven.

Antoine was a wonderful man with a beautiful heart. He will forever be missed by his friends and colleagues at Coastal.

May got put his arms around your entire family and comfort you all in this time of need. SIP Antoine.

 

Kristen Spawn (Spannagel) posted on 4/3/20

Lauren and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. In the 12 years I worked with him, I don't know if I ever saw him without a smile. I especially loved seeing that smile when we had our company picnics. I got to be the one to hand out name tags at each picnic. Some would grumble that they were asked to wear them and some made silly jokes about those name tags. Antoine would snatch that sticker from me and slap it on his chest. Such kindness and generosity. He was loved by all of us that had the honor to work alongside him, directly or indirectly.

Leslie posted on 4/3/20

It’s important to me to make sure that Mammie is remembered as she would want to be. Scoliosis, pain, and medication did a lot of damage to her in her final years, but she was so much more than these final years. Part of me wants to rage at how cruel life can be, how she suffered so much. But I won’t rage, because she wouldn’t want me to. Her generous nature would encourage us all to let the sadness go and just focus on the beautiful moments we had with her. I’d like to ask us all to look back in our lives and remember our beloved mother and Mammie as she was for most of her days. She was a girl who rebelliously danced to “Great balls of fire” with my father in her parents living room, all the while knowing her mother was NOT happy about this NEW music. She was a bright eyed girl who married a sailor against her parents wishes. They liked him, but they did not want her to get married so young. As a young couple they struggled, and they often ate PBJ’s to get by. She was a bit of a hipster, and I can remember her dancing with us kids to the old song “Squeezebox” at my uncle Billy’s house. She was a buffer between us and our father when we got into trouble. She was a peacemaker who tried to keep things in the house running smoothly. She was the glue that held our family together. I will miss the early morning phone calls on my birthday, and I will miss hearing her sing Christmas carols in her kitchen. She was The apple of her father’s eye, and vice versa. She grieved terribly when she lost him, and she spoke of him often with a smile and a tear. She was a proud mother. She never hesitated to tell us that we were loved and she always found something in us worth praise, even when we ourselves couldn’t see it. She most specifically defined herself as a loving Mammie. The grandkids were her life, even as she aged. They may be too young to remember, but there was never a weekend in the past that we weren’t all together at her home, playing red rover, sharing a meal, watching football or having a picnic. As she got older that got harder for her but she always loved her grandchildren unconditionally. She loved to travel and experience new things. She overcame her fear of boats and became an avid cruiser. She ALMOST overcame her fear of flying. She was a caregiver. As dad’s illnesses progressed, she stepped up in real love and cared for him, no matter what his needs were. Even has her own body began to betray her, she was steadfast in physically caring for him and loving him. Most specifically for me, she was my precious mama. My best friend, confidant, protector, biggest fan, counselor, cheerleader, and giver of unconditional love. She accepted me for all my flaws and poor decisions. She knew all of my faults yet still loved me completely. I can’t compare her to other moms, I’ve only known her love - and I know I would choose no other. She leaves behind four children who are devastated with her loss, and are grappling with the irony of losing the one person in the world who could always help us deal with and conquer our worst pain.

I didn't personally know Jimmy, but felt I did know him through his sister, Karen. The love and admiration she had for him spoke volumes about his character. He fought a long and brave battle, but now he is rewarded in seeing the face of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Jim, how will I ever thank you for all that you taught me about life. You were such an influence on my outlook on life and on how I viewed others. I am at a loss for words, but I could also fill up a hundred of these tiny little blocks with memories of you. I have already been missing you for years, and I will continue to. There will always be a smile on my face when I remember you.

My Dearest Mammie... I took your hand and promised to take care of Bubba. And I will do my best for you. I find it very difficult to imagine visits to McClure Road without. Walking onto that porch to visit you & Granny always meant family, security, love and knowing my three little ones were loved. Movies, Christmas lights, watching the year without a Santa Claus on Thanksgiving....waiting for you to find our gift that you took such effort in wrapping at Christmas. Many years later, we found another love..cruising. The planning, shopping, packing, driving, rest stops, Cracker Barrel meals... and the memories from the cruises. Priceless. Just priceless. Running through my head eating spaghetti at that restaurant, the Platters, dressing up and looking fancy!! I am so grateful and thankful and blessed to have all these precious memories tucked away in my head. You were my momma. I lost a small piece of my heart when you flew high. I will miss you dearly❤️.

My grandmother left us early monday morning. Her entire life was lived in service to her family. She taught me so much growing up. There were practical things, like how to sew and make zucchini bread, but the things she taught by demonstration, without even realizing she was teaching, are far more valuable. She taught me the importance of taking a quiet moment for self care and reflection. She was always up in the dark hours of the morning, sitting quietly, enjoying a cup of coffee. She taught me that love can be shown in many ways, by wrapping me up in the warm robe that she was just wearing when I woke up to find her sitting in the dim light. She helped foster my love of travel, they never went on a vacation without taking a couple of grandkids along. She was the perfect southern lady, composed and polite and hospitable, but with a quiet fire that lived inside. She lived her own way, she never let her family or upbringing or circumstances influence her beliefs, even when she stood alone in them. She taught me strength. She had a quiet sense of humor, which made it even better when she let it out. She pretended that she was too genteel to understand a dirty joke, but we saw her snickering with a twinkle in her eye. She'd never let you go to bed without dessert, and she never let anyone leave without standing on the front porch, waving goodbye until the car was out of sight. She would cook elaborate meals for holidays, host the entire family in her house, and she wouldn't sit and eat until she was sure everyone had what they needed. She even showed patience when, in my curiosity, I managed to deflate about 50 yeast rolls she had rising on her kitchen counter for a Thanksgiving meal. She shared her simple love of tomato sandwiches and grilled cheese with me, she'd cut mine into the shape of a flower. In the end, she showed us humility and vulnerability, traits that don’t often come easy to a strong southern woman. She and my grandfather were the model of a perfect relationship, not without struggle, but full of grace and perseverance and constant, unwavering love. I don’t know if I believe in any higher power, or what form it may take, but I hope like hell he was waiting for her and they’re together again, in some way. She has taught me so much about the kind of woman I want to be, and I will continue on with her lessons and values in mind. Que Sera, Sera... What Will Be Will Be.

I would like to share a moment from her granddaughter Lisa and our son, Jason’s wedding rehearsal dinner. She was standing sweetly next to my husband Vince and looking so elegant in her dress. I couldn’t imagine what she and Vince were snickering about, until the waitresses brought out two shots of what appeared to be vodka. Patsy and Vince clincked shot glasses and downed the shots, in a toast to the bride and groom. I recall every being in shock, as Patsy was quite a petite woman. They both laughed to themselves, and later Vince tells me that Patsys “shot of vodka” was actually plain old water. She fooled us allll for sure. Will never forget that, and many special moments with her and the family. We are honored to know her and she will be greatly missed. Love Vince and Mary Morris
