Death of a Classmate- Donald Wilford - 17th Company

Received the following from John Carson:


Don's widow, Nancy, informed me today that Don passed away last Thursday, 26 March.

Jan and I have had the privilege and pleasure of Don and Nancy's friendship for more than 28 years. We will miss him. Our prayers are with him, Nancy, and their families.

Don and Nancy both earned USCG Captains licenses and enjoyed many years of sailing the waters between Down East Maine and the Caribbean on their sailboat, the Donald MacKay.

We will remember Don as a man who never hesitated to serve and enrich his Country, his family, and his friends. We found him steadfast, unflappable, a caring friend, and a joy to be with.

Don't know what Nancy plans to do about an obituary or notifying the Class organization. Maybe you can pass the info to the appropriate folk.

Thanks
