I married his grandson I never knew him but I understand his legacy and it's beautiful

Although I never new him I spent time ti with his widow Rutihie. Lucy never loved again and she never remarried and loved John to the day she died. Her death was boxing the photos official Navy photos Hawaii amazing history of the life they shared together before his death. As a nurse my favorite patients are veterans the stories they told me firsthand accounts of War World 2 changed me forever! I was married to John grandson David for 30 years. They are together forever now

Five Killed as Navy Plane Crashes

SAIGON (UPI)--A U. S. Navy patrol plane crashed while patrolling for submarines in the South China Sea off central Vietnam Tuesday, killing five of the 13-man crew. The eight survivors were rescued by the U. S. destroyer Maddox. A U. S. Navy spokesman at Sangley Point NAS in the Philippines discounted the possibility that the twin-engine P-2 Neptune aircraft had been shot down. A U. S. Navy spokesman in Saigon said the plane was on a routine anti-submarine patrol mission about 75 miles off the coast and 340 miles northeast of Saigon when it went down. In Washington, the Navy identified the five men lost. They were LCDR John C. Thomas, whose wife, Ruth, lives at the Marine Corps Air Station at Iwakuni, Japan. Aviation Structural Mechanic/1C Michael J. Ulicsni, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Ulicsni of Parkville, Minn. Aviation Machinist Mate/1C, Deloss W. Anderson, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Anderson of Spokane, Wash. Aviation Ordnanceman/2C Donald F. Marit, husband of Mrs. Ruby Catherine Marit of Litchfield, Ill. Aviation Electrician's Mate/2C Weslie D. Newborn, husband of Mrs. Pauline Newborn of San Diego, Ca. [Taken from Pacific Stars & Stripes, September 11, 1964]
