Terrible news, I know he was fighting until the end though.
You will be missed but will keep your family in prayer. Mat Gogs grace get them thru this time.
Lost my father earlier this year to cancer. Also a Marine and Vietnam vet. That was only the coups de grace that Agent Orange hit him with.
True, cancer can and will happen to anyone. But we lose too many Vietnam vets disproportionately to it.
Edit: I don't mean to hijack this thread. Just lamenting another loss of a vet that maybe shouldn't have been. Keep it about Coastal.
Oh no, so sorry to read this. Great guy here on the boards and clearly in real life.
Oh no!! How horrible. RIP
No edit necessary. A sad reality a lot of good men and their families have faced.
He packed a lot of experiences into his years. Lots of stories to tell everyone up there.
SPANISH: Descanse en paz Coastal Steeler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gran pérdida para la Steelers Nation.
I joined this message board the same day that Coastal, Oct 16, 2011.
