He was preceded in death by his wife, June Carter. He talked often of going to be with her.
Dad was a member of the greatest generation living through hard times, the great depression, WW2, and the Korean Conflict. He served his country during WW2 in the Coast Guard and after the war he left the Coast Guard briefly and joined the Navy making it a career. He loved being at sea and would often entertain his grandchildren with stories of launching and retrieving aircraft aboard the Aircraft Carriers he served on with pride. He retired from the Navy after 20 years. Then went to work for the Post Office in Mountain View Ca.

He always had a smile on his face and a story to share. He will be missed by all who were blessed to have had him in their life.
