  2. Did Jerome Sr. pass on? I served with him at VR-48 NAF Andrews circa late 70’s early 80’s. Good guy, liked the man, sorry for your oss. Rest easy Jerome.

      • I’m truly sorry to hear this. I hadn’t seen him since the early 80’s I’m guessing. Did he retire from the Navy or move back to Baltimore when his hitch was up?

      • Hi Steve, I apologize for not responding to you earlier. I lost track of things and I thought I had. Jerome did retire from the Navy and moved back to Baltimore, then. Thank you for inquiring about my cousin.
