Voice: Passing of a sailor

March 05, 2002

I just read in the Internet version of the Imperial Valley Press that retired sailor Bill Harmon passed away last Saturday. For those that might not remember, Bill and his dedicated wife Ruth were the mainstay of the Navy relief effort at the Naval Air Facility El Centro for many, many years.

They continued to maintain those efforts until Bill became ill some 10 years ago. As I recall, Ruth's love for Bill was everlasting as she cared for him during his lengthy illness. They were a tough couple, and loved the Navy and those who served. Fair winds and following seas Bill … you served with endless loyalty to your service and your country.

God bless and watch over you Ruth.

MIKE and SANDI BOSTON,

Lakeway, Texas
