    [E-mail received 08-22-01 from Jim Arango, Buck's brother-in-law]
    I am sad and sorry to have to inform you that my brother-in-law, (Perry/Buck) passed on this morning at 5:30 AM.  He went peacefully and did not suffer.  He was aware that he was surrounded by many of those who loved him. All of us present spent some private time with him telling him how we felt and reminiscing about the good times we shared.

    [E-mail received 10-24-00]
    I reported to the ship 30 Oct 66 as a Chief Personnelman and served in her until Dec 28, 1968, we made two westpac cruises.  Departed San Diego on or about 3 November 1966, we ran over a grey whale and bent the starboard shaft but were not aware of this until we were well on our way to Pearl Harbor, they didn't have a dry dock available so we went to the Philippines and went into dry dock, all the time steaming on the Port screw.  The filipeno's put us into dry dock, pulled the starboard shaft straightened same put us back together and away we went to Vietnam.  We took a hit in the starboard side just above the waterline on St Patty's Day 1967.  You see we had a marine pilot in a spotter, prop job, plane, he was shot down and he ditched in the sea, we went into pick him up but when we shut down the superheater in order to slow down, we lost power, that is when Charlie put a round in us, we got the pilot, went out to sea and put a temporary patch over the hole then went back and silenced Charlie.  Those old 5"38's really did the job.

    [Original biography]
    I served in the US Navy for thirty years and retired in 1972. Boot camp was at Norfolk. In September '42 transferred to RM "A" school and graduated January 1943. Then transferred to the Philadelphia FFA then New York FFA. In April '43 transferred to the commissioning detail of the USS Andromeda (AKA- 15) at Brooklyn Navy Yard.

    I came aboard the Stoddard fresh out of boot camp, in 1951 at Charleston SC. The first day that I reported aboard, I accidentally went to the forward engine room, looking for Lester Pryor, BT1, but was told that he was the next hole forward. I was a fireman apprentice and eventually made 2nd class petty officer. For a span of time I was "Oil King." Discharged July 1954 at Newport, RI. Married twice, have four daughters, 2 step daughters, 5 grandsons. Worked for an insurance company for 36+ years as a buyer of printing. Retired 1/93. Then worked part time as bartender. Hobbies are bowling, golf; also enjoy taking short trips. It's hard to believe that almost 50 years have gone by since I was on the Stoddard.

    I served aboard the Stoddard putting her in commission in 1944 and was present on the decommissioning crew in 1946. It was during the Korean conflict that I decided to make the Navy a career. I had married and transferred to RTC at Great Lakes. I pushed boots and later got into the PT department as a swimming instructor and even coached the Great Lakes swim team, left for California in January 1952, boarded a LSMR (rocket ship) for a cruise to the far east. It returned October '54 and was decommissioned at Astoria, Oregon. I then went to gunnery school, class B (Washington DC). After graduation I boarded an APA 30 USS Chilton at Norfolk. It underwent a yard period then made a cruise to Cuba. When we returned I put in for fire control conversion school and completed this in 1 year and changed my rate from GMI to FTC. Took the chiefs test and made chief in '57. Returned to the west coast where I boarded a destroyer tender at San Diego. Then I went to Seattle where I boarded the heavy cruiser USS Bremerton CA-130. Made two cruises on this vessel, mostly in the Singapore area. Finally left it with some shore duty orders at Subic Bay, Philippines. This took me back to San Diego for more schooling (Class C instructors and leadership schools). Then off to Minnesota where I was assigned to the Univ. of Minn. as an assistant instructor with the ROTC unit. After 3 1/2 years I transferred to the fleet reserve at Great Lakes on October 26, 1962. Finally my 20 years were up.

    After leaving the service I graduated from NW Electr. Inst. in MN and went to CDC and retired from there after 20 years in September '84. Pat and I attended health club, played golf and sailed my boat (a day sailer) regularly. I especially enjoyed cross country skiing. I had a massive stroke in '87 and this has put me in a wheel chair. My son Mitchell will be attending the Charleston Reunion with me.

    I was one of two radar technicians assigned to Stoddard in April 1944. The rating was later changed to electronic technician, a more descriptive designation since we were trained in the maintenance and repair of radio receivers and transmitters, sonar, and surface, air and fire control radar. My watch station was CIC while my battle station was Repair 3 aft. The experiences from these two stations are many. After service I obtained a BA in business and economics and was employed in the aerospace field working on jet fighters, ICBM's and the Apollo program. We are now enjoying our new home in the Sierras and spend our retirement hiking with our dog and traveling.

    I got out of the Navy in 1946 and stayed out for 5.5 months. Then I went back for a four year enlistment and after the four years I decided I would stay in for the 20 years.

    Besides serving on the Stoddard on some shore commands from Guam in 1946-1948, then on the west coast and then off to Japan for a couple of years.  Once again back to the west coast, but this time to Seattle, then to Taiwan.  After that I spend 3 years in Washington DC followed by a tour of duty on two aircraft carriers, the USS Valley Forge and the USS Forrestal, and my last tour of duty was at the shore patrol headquarters in Philadelphia for three months.

    I retired from the Navy on Oct 6, 1964 after 20 years, 3 months and 10 days, and came out with the rating of RM1c.  Received a nice pension along with social security.

    I was married in 1954. My wife has retired from her job as a librarian at the North High School here in Des Moines.  We have two sons.

Hello Bob
I was aboard just a few months in early 1966.  I'd been aboard USS Porterfield DD 682.  She left for WESTPAC in January and I was a short timer, on four months extension so I was transferred to Stoddard until my discharge in March.

    [ Letter sent to all shipmates by Gary D. Niehaus, Ph.D., USS Stoddard 1968-1969 ]

    One of the USS Stoddard alumni would really enjoy hearing from you. Since he is a great guy and a bit of a hero, you will enjoy communicating with him. Let me tell you a little about him.

    Ensign Christopher Silleroy joined the Operations Department of the Stoddard in early 1968. Like all Ensigns, Chris didn't know much (how can a guy from New Mexico know anything about the navy?) but he listened to the Chiefs, he worked hard, and he made his shipmates laugh (it is impossible not to laugh a lot when you are around Chris). He was a valuable member of the crew during the Stoddard's last Westpac cruise. When the Stoddard was decommissioned, Chris received brown water training and was sent to Viet Nam to command a squadron of river patrol boats (PBR). While on patrol, an AK-47 round hit the right side of Chris' head. He was medivaced to a field hospital, stabilized, and sent home by way of Japan. His prognosis was so poor that he had to be held in Japan for six months to permit him to gain strength for the rest of the trip home. During his long convalescence he had to relearn to write, walk and function with left side paralysis. As Chris earned a journalism degree, he kept the people around him laughing. With that same laughter, he wrote to champion veterans rights. A few years ago, Chris fell and injured the left (other) side of his head. When my wife and I visited him at his assisted living apartment (in May), he was confined to a wheel chair and is nearly blind . . . but his joy of life remains contagious. Chris is one of those few people who can be dealt a really bad hand and play it with great exuberance and skill. In my book, he is a true hero.

    Chris fondly remembers his time on the Stoddard. It would mean a great deal to him if you would write him (in large print) a letter saying something like "I understand you served on the Stoddard, I did too." Then you can tell him your favorite sea story. The letter would brighten a shipmate's day. However, you should not expect a reply . . . he really can't write letters anymore.

    His address is:

      Christopher Silleroy

    For a little background, I was a member of the recommissioning crew in 1951, an RD2 at the time.  After making RD1 I transferred to shore duty at Fleet Training Center, Newport in 1955.  During that tour I made chief, then attended "B" school at Treasure Island; after which back to the DD Navy aboard Gatling DD671, followed by F.T. Berry DDE 858, both in Newport.  Incidentally, the old Newport waterfront and downtown area are gone, replaced by marinas, hotels, fancy shops, etc.

    In May 1954 I got married. Unfortunately, the ship nearing completion of overhaul in Boston Navy Yard, that was the day she went out on first sea trial.  Disaster! All those young ladies at the wedding reception and no sailors. And I had to drink all the beer (not all at that time, of course).

    In 1966 I retired from the Navy as Senior Chief Radarman while serving aboard USS Independence CVA62, and from federal civil service in 1983 as a GS12.  We've lived in Pensacola since 1974.

    Sadly, the only former crewmember I had regular contact with was Lester (Louey) Pryor, BTC, who died a few years ago.

    The Independence was on one of here Yankee Station tours off Vietnam in 1965 when who should come alongside for replenishment but the good old 566. I could hardly believe it! Still going strong 14 years after her recommissioning in Charleston. She looked as sharp as ever, but must have been pretty worn out by then.  I took several pictures of her and am attempting to find the slides to make snapshots, but no luck so far with my storage "system"... Her voice radio call sign was "Two Bits"

    As S1c, I was shipped from Treasure Island in 1944 to board the Stoddard in Bremerton, Washington. I was in the 3rd Division, if my memory is correct. Then later went into radio department, as radar man striker. Served in Stoddard's Pacific campaign until I got my "ruptured duck' in November 1946.

    In June 1949 I joined the USAF, served 17 years, retired and was a civilian employee at Alameda Naval Air Station for 6 years. Moved to Redding, Ca and worked 12 years for Shasta County, and then finally retired. My wife Anne and I were married in June 1950. We have one son, Ivan.

Then I joined the Air Force and completed my 20 years, retiring a M.SGT. Then I worked for the US Postal Service as a letter carrier for 10 years. In 1975 I went into business for myself, restoring antique cars until 1997. I've had to cut back on work, doing only the stainless steel trim that need repair. At our age we won't be coming to the reunion as our "world" is closing in on us. But we enjoy hearing from the old Stoddard crew members, and enclose a photo taken with one of our restored antique cars.

    I was gunners mate 2c and a plank owner when I went aboard the USS Stoddard. I made GMlc. Up north I was in charge of gun 45 40mm between 5" mounts 3 and 4. When we went south I was put in charge of 5" mount #5.

    After the war I worked for an air conditioning company in California, then for a bakery and then bought a franchise with the Taco Bell in Greely, CO. I later sold it and bought a franchise in Oklahoma City and sold back to Taco Bell in 1970. After that I worked for Taco Bell as a city manager-supervisor and then opened a distribution center for them for the state of Oklahoma. I retired in 1980 and moved to Mesa, Arizona.

[Email message October 13, 2001 to Glen Balzer regarding Dan Withers ]

I remember the "dork meter" well; I modestly christened it the AN/BDS-1. Dan and I were on a troubleshooting mission in the Radio Shack (exact problem not remembered). Must have been a power problem tho, as Dan noticed a main power panel switch that was slightly ajar. He operated the switch-shutting down everything in the Radio Shack but the lights.

Never at a loss to appropriately respond to a situation, Dan moved his white hat over his face and left the Radio Shack, shutting off the lights as he left.

I always remembered the above as one of the funniest Stoddard experiences I had.

He enlisted in 1942 and served onboard Stoddard from 1944 to 1946.

    I served aboard the Stoddard during World War II.  When I was discharged from the service I worked at several menial jobs and then went into the fishing fleet, fishing for tuna.  I have been married and divorced twice.  I remarried three years ago after 26 years.  I have two sons by my second marriage.

    I lived in Las Vegas for 3 years, a short time in Idaho, and then moved to Washington State and lived there from 1965 until 1983.  I have lived in California from 1983 to the present time.  I am now retired from the construction business.

I was aboard the STODDARD from Dec 62 until Oct 63. I was in OI DIV, RD2. I got out after throwing the lines over for the STODDARD on her way to WESTPAC. I cruise the web site every now and then and saw MR. Althouse's name recently. I e-mailed him and got an immediate response with a very nice message. He mentioned you had contacted him. I'm glad to say he is still as good of a person as he was when he was a JG. Will watch the web for more details on San Diego.

    I joined the Navy in March 1949, and served through July, 1972. I reported aboard the USS Stoddard DD566 in October 1966, and was Boiler Tech Chief. Made two west pack cruises and was aboard in 1967 when she took a direct hit at the water line just below the aft 5" gun mount. We made emergency repairs and took the ship into Sasebo, Japan. I served on the decommissioning detail that put the Stoddard out of commission in Vallejo, California in September 1969. After that I went onto the USS Chicago CG11, then a tour of shore duty. I retired from the US Navy in July 1972, then went to work as a steam plant engineer until I retired in September 1992. My wife Eileen and I are traveling around the country going to ship's reunions and enjoying ourselves.
