Comments: I flew with "Cat" on a number of times and what he did that day surprised no one that knew him well! He called me about a year and a half after we both had returned to the States to hook up with me when he was travelling across going to Calif. For some reason we never got together and to this day, it's one of my saddest regrets in life. You really don't appreciate an occasion or a person I guess until they or it are no longer there! Like everything else in this world, it is a sadder place without him!
Rest Well Tony!!

Comments: I have very fond memories of Catalina. While in Quang Tri one day he took several of the newbie crew chiefs down to the perimeter wire and showed us how to fire a free gun. He knew what it was going to take to keep us alive. The man never asked for anything and was always willing to give of himself. I credit him with keeping me alive while there and will never forget him. I have one great photo of him in the tent city in Quang Tri if anyone wants one.
