Tribute submitted by his daughter Cynthia Brown Hanson

My father was in the Philippines with the Navy when he met the

love of his life.  When his enlistment was done, he didn't re-up.  

Instead he went back home to Iowa.  He could not afford to travel

back to the Philippines on his own, but stubbornness kept him from

rejoining the Navy.  So, thank goodness for my aunt, that insisted

that was exactly what he should do.

That put him aboard the USS Ranger. He then re-met the love of his life

and married her, my mother Cecilia D. Brown.

I don't know if it was because of that or the friends he made that made

Ranger a special part of his life.  But remembering the look in his eyes

when he looked at my mom and the stories he told of his times

aboard Ranger, I think it was both.

I Love You Dad
