T.S. Eliot Quote - Going too far Churchhill Religion Pirates Home Address Brotherhood

OI1869280318 MidgettCONCORD - Robert Midgett, 51, passed away on Wednesday, June 17, 2015, at his home. Professional services entrusted to Boston's Mortuary.

  • I am so sorry to hear that Rob has passed. I considered him as one of my best buds on the submarine as I had even met his parents in Long Beach. I played Frisbee golf with him at Balboa Field in San Diego and spent many fun times with him. I believe I even saw his brother get the Eagle Scout award. He is the last one I thought would ever loose a bout to cancer as he was one strong guy having played polo. I will always remember the moments we shared. Please stay strong. Tommy Michaud.

  • miss u brother, great memories man...always on my mind..

  • 75 years later, Search Finds Ship’s Stern Ripped Away by Mine in WWII’s Aleutians Campaign
    Halfway through his midwatch, 19-year-old Seaman Daryl Weathers scanned the screens in the darkened radio shack as the USS Abner Read (DD-526) hunted Japanese submarines off the Aleutian island of Kiska on Aug. 18, 1943.
