I received word today from Ursula Vosseler, widow of CAPT Warren P. Vosseler, that he had passed away this past October.
Warren reported aboard VP-4 in Nov 1966 and became Executive Officer in Dec 1966.  He served as Commanding Officer from Nov 1967 until Dec 1968.
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Warren Paul "Voss" Vosseler, Capt. (Ret.) U.S. Navy, 86, a 25 year resident of Annapolis, died October 18 at home suddenly, battling lengthy illnesses.
He was born September 28, 1926 in Orange, N.J., receiving a B.S. degree from the United States Naval Academy in 1949; followed by a B.S., Aeronautical Engineering, U.S. Naval Post Graduate School, Monterey, CA; M.S., Aeronautical Engineering, University of Michigan; M.S., International Affairs, George Washington University, Washington, D.C.; and Naval War College, Newport, RI.
Capt. Vosseler received a Naval Academy Congressional Appointment from the State of New Jersey by Senator Robert Taft, graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1949. Following a brief ship tour to the Arctic, he proceeded to flight training in Pensacola, FL, qualifying as a Naval Aviator.
Operational tours were with Anti-Submarine Patrol Squadron NINE (VP-9) deploying twice in support of the Korean War and Anti-Submarine Patrol Squadron EIGHTEEN (VP-18) deploying in support of Cuban Missile Crisis and UNITAS, Joint British and Greek Operations in the Mediterranean, British and Canadian Operations in the Atlantic, and Pacific Rim Flight Exercises.
He reported aboard Anti-Submarine Patrol Squadron FOUR (VP-4) in 1966 as Executive Officer, eventually fleeting up as their Commanding Officer in 1967; deploying twice in support of combat operations in the Vietnam Theater of Operations.
Ashore, he served as the Air Guided Missile and Air Officer at U.S. Pacific Fleet and Special Projects Officer with Navy's POLARIS missile system. Captain Vosseler completed his Naval Career in Washington, D.C., retiring in 1979 with 30 years of active duty service.
He became active as a private consultant in the National Defense community. He was awarded the Air Medal (2 Awards, 1strike/ flight award), Navy Unit Commendation, World War Two Victory, National Defense Service Medal (2 awards), American Campaign, Korean Service (3 Awards), Vietnam Presidential Unit Citation, Korean Service, Vietnam Service, and Vietnam Campaign.
Captain Vosseler was a longtime Annapolis Rotarian. Naval Academy activities included the USNA Sesquicentennial, the Annapolis Tri-Centennial, Squadron Commander of the Annapolis Chapter of the Association of Naval Aviation, life member of the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association, and Association of Naval Aviation. He diligently served his community of Chesapeake Harbour as a volunteer.
He loved to travel with his wife to Europe, especially Germany, where they both had family and friends. Numerous other adventures included Asia, Australia, South America, Africa, and worldwide ocean cruises. He enjoyed skiing, sailing, golf, shopping, and Bavarian Austrian folk dancing. In his later years, he enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, and his artistic side, including ceramic pottery, and scrapbooking the family travels. He had a lifelong love of Navy football, cheering at the last three games.
Married on November 15, 1975, Captain Vosseler is survived by his wife, Ursula Vosseler; and his daughter, Leslie Carol. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, two god-children, and one delightful German mother-in-law.
There will be a memorial service at 10 a.m. on Monday, November 5, at the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel. Inurnment immediately following the service.
Contributions can be made in his memory to your preferred cause or charity.
