Christopher Pipkin

Chris Pipkin, ET2(SS), Forward Electronics, served with us on the Bates from 79-83. I was just informed by his step-son, Christopher Radke, that Chris passed away this evening, September 22, succumbing to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident earlier today.

Fair winds and following seas, Chris. You were our brother. You will be missed.
