We never addressed each other by our given names. He will always be Fred to me. The one thing we had so much joy laughter,respect and security is for the love of our M1 carbines. Not to touch it when its hot.
It was an honor to know and share part if his life.

My condolences, everyone. I didn't know Uncle Gordon well, but I remember him from when I was younger. God bless you all.

I am so sorry for your families loss. I met Ed when we were all stationed in Guam. He did love to have a good time and enjoyed all of the kids running around. Haven't seen him in many years but have always been found of him and the entire family. RIP Ed!
