Goodbye, Dad. 95 good years and a WW II veteran of the Italian campaign.
Please accept our most sincere condolences... and thanks.
95 years, but never long enough.
Rest easy, soldier.
Many thanks to him for his service.
Roar, you have my sympathies. I'm glad that you got to spend so many years with him.
Sorry to hear and much respect to you and yours.
Sorry to hear about your Dad, Roar. I lost my father, also a WWII veteran, a couple years ago. He never spoke very often about his experiences during the war. Found out when I was well into my 30's he manned a 40mm anti-aircraft Bofors gun mount on a destroyer that took a Kamikaze hit while patrolling off the coast of Okinawa. Never an easy time losing a parent, no matter their age.
I'm sorry to hear that Roar, but thankful he got to live a full life.
Sorry for your loss. My Dad was on the AC Belleau Wood that got kamikazed hard at Leyte. Arrived in the Pacific at the end of Guadalcanal. He left us in '03. Never spoke about the conflict.
You have my sincere condolences on the loss of your father.
Remember, he does live on inside of you. You carry his memory and all that he made good with you.
Deep heartfelt condolences Roar. God Bless you and your entire family.
Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family Roar.
It's simply amazing how none of those WW2 guys ever talked much about their experiences. It's fascinating psychology.
Compare it to today’s glory hounds.
So sorry Roar. Lost my pop last fall also at age 95. Battle of the Bulge vet.
I think of what men like our dads were faced with in their twenties. Amazing men they were.
Sincere condolences to your family.
Prayers for you and family. I sometimes reflect on that generation with envy. Those who survived the Great Depression and WW2 went on to live lives that must have greatly exceeded expectations. I'm glad you had your Dad for so long.
Sorry to hear....may he rest in peace.
My 92 year old Father in Law passed yesterday as well. He was on the destroyer USS Thomas Frasier off Iwo Jima & Okinawa. Found out about his experience from a history written obout his ship. Also found an envelope with pictures he had taken @ Hiroshima.
Prayers... they were the GREATEST.
sorry for your loss
prayers to your family!
My condolences. My father passed away in 2009. He was in the army of occupation in Japan right after the war ended as the bomb was dropped when he was finishing his airborne training and therefore missed action. Had the bomb not been dropped, he surely would have been killed as the airborne would have been the first into Japan in Operation Downfall, the planned US invasion of Japan. They expected 90% casualties or higher with the airborne divisions. I lost my mother nearly a year ago, and although she had nothing to do with the military, she talked about all those in her high school who were killed in action and how sad it was. Today, I don’t think most people really understand or appreciate the sacrifices that were made during that time.
Roar More, sorry for your loss. Hang in there, buddy.
Sad to hear but celebrate how fortunate we all have been to live in the most peaceful of time due to people like your father. He left an awesome legacy
My sympathies Roar. It’s truly humbling when we consider the sacrifices your Dad and their generation made.
My dad served during the occupation of Japan, too. Lost him in 1993 at age 82.
My sympathies on your loss Roar.
My condolences to you and your family. May he RIP.
Sorry for your loss, Roar.
Sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family.
Forgive me for hijacking the thread, but please do take the time to reach out to friends and relatives to thank them for what they've done for you in your lives. You'll be glad you did and there will come a time when it will be too late to do it.
Very sorry to hear that Roar, my condolences to you and your family. The numbers of WWII veterans are few now. I lost my dad in 2009, and my father-in-law almost 10 years earlier. Respect to all of these great men and women
^^^^This^^^^ He is in heaven for he served his time in hell on earth. May he rest in peace.
God bless him and a huge thank you from a fellow vet may he rest in peace
A sad day, but no regrets if it was 95 good years. I lost dad last summer after 92 wonderful years, including a stint in the Pacific. Reading messages like yours still brings tears to my eyes. We honor them with our love and memories.
Very sorry to see this, Roar.
lobo, I am sorry for your loss as well. Prayers offered.
sorry to hear that, roar. thoughts & prayers for you and your family.
Very sorry for your loss. Tough losing a dad at any age. People told me when I lost mine at 97 that he lived a good life, and he did, but it didn't make it any easier.
Thanks to all for their condolences. It is greatly appreciated. The McAndrews family has its squabbles, but we do come together for the important things.
