Hi there! I found this website in some of my dad's things, he was a member here. I believe his handle was USNSalt here on SigTalk. I dunno if he ever told you about me or anything but I'm his son, and I figured I would update you all and let you know what happened. He passed away earlier this year from complications caused from the Covid-19 virus. I'm not sure if any of you were close to my dad or not, but I figured if he spent any amount of time here he'd have wanted you guys to know what happened.

I didn't know your dad, but I am sorry to hear he passed. I'm sure some of the members here who did know your father will appreciate you letting them know what happened. Welcome to the forum.

So sorry for your loss. I didn't know your dad either, but I'm sure others will recognize his handle.

Thanks for letting us know. My wife has a couple missing neighbors in her games and we always wonder why they aren't online any longer.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Welcome to SigTalk! I knew your dad! He was salty at times, but very proud of you! He spoke about you often. IIRC he was being promoted last we heard from him. My condolences to you over your loss. He was a good guy serving our country :) Damn Covid19 :mad:

Thank you for sharing this with us.

Salty was definitely an apt word. Some of his friends from the Navy told me that that is pretty much a respect thing. He did end up making Chief, although he didn't really get to enjoy it so to speak. He had only been promoted maybe a month before he got sick, if that. It wasn't very long at all. From his head to his boot, dad was a sailor. He loved the Navy, loved the ocean, loved me - he never missed an opportunity to make sure I knew it, too. He lived his life wherever the ocean took him, wherever the Navy told him to go, one day at a time, one watch at a time.

And thanks guys for the kind wishes and stuff. I like to think that he's still standing watch, but now on the greatest ocean of all.

He taught me everything I know about sailing, about the ocean, fishing, shooting, etc. I love the ocean too, one could say it's in the blood, heh. Probably why I'll end up joining the Navy myself but we'll see about that.
