It is my sad duty to report the death of my old friend Bill Weitz ( ETRSN) who I served with on the Seattle 1971-73. Bill passed away in Massachusetts on March 31, 2010 at 9:30AM. He will be cremated and his ashes spread in Monterey Bay. We had some great times onboard, in the ET shop, and liberty ports. Bill and I used to drive home together on weekends and we kept in contact for several years after we both got out of the Navy. We lost contact for many years and a few months ago reconnected through Facebook while Bill was receiving cancer treatments. Memories of our fun times together and ship sponsered trips such as those to Rome and the Montecarlo Grand Prix will be adventures I will always remember. I wish now we would have reconnected long ago as we had great times lately reminiscing through email and facebook and sharing photos. Regards, Dale Cochoy ETN3

I thought I'd enclose a couple pictures of Bill for those that served with him.

First is the last photo of Bill taken in March  2010.

Second is a picture of Bill shortly after he got out of the Navy with  his Chevy Vega which we drove home together in on the weekends MANY times.

Last is a shot of him with his horse "Sunfire"
