  1. We lost a good man who went to his New Life in the Cosmos yesterday.. Darwin McKee, aged 74 from Perry Iowa has passed on. Marcy and I offer our Heartfelt wish for peace and comfort to Macs family and his dear wife Terry..
    He was a Proud US Navy Veteran,, GMG3 McKee served in Vietnam, and aboard the USS LOYALTY MSO 457, he was very proud of his Service. He created several businesses, and helped raise a wonderful Family. We became friends about 10 years ago on-line in a small Navy community page, and our group wrote to each other pretty much every single day. Mac and our small group know as much about what is going on in our lives as our spouses, and that is no exaggeration.. haha. A terrific friend,,! We will miss his friendship, sharp wit, great advice over the years, talking about the Navy, and picking on each other. ;->
    Love you Mac,, Rest easy Shipmate.
