Comments: My Dad loved the Navy and often said that if he had a last wish,

he would love to be back on the CONY again. His whole life

evolved around his life on HIS ship. My DAD passed away on Nov.

30,2012 after a courageous battle with cancer. I'm sure that my

DAD is back on the U.S.S. Cony now with all his friends that he

served with. Anchors Away DAD, Love eternally, Your Daughter,

Paulette (P.J.)
