Last Known Activity
While playing tennis (he was 84 years young) with another retired Navy Captain and good friend, he suffered a massive heart attack, from which he never recovered. He accepted his Eternal Patrol orders at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, TX, at 12:49AM Wednesday morning, August 5th, 2009. We will all miss him immensely!
