Joseph David (Dave) Heward, a World War II and Korean Navy Seal, died April 5, 2013, at the age of 96.

Dave was in the middle of things in the naval war of the South Pacific. He participated in the Iwo Jima landing and would have been in the Pelelieu invasion had his ship, the USS Noah, not been rammed and sunk by a sister US Navy ship. After many hours in the water, Dave and his buddy were picked up by the battleship USS PENNSYLVANIA.

During the war, Dave was assigned to NCDU 32, Team ABLE, and UDT-14 after undergoing training at Ft. Pierce, FL. Leaving the Navy after the war, he pursued a career as a pipefitter. Then, when the Korean War broke out, he re-enlisted in the Service and served as a fleet shipfitter. After that conflict he resumed his pipefitting career.

Dave was predeceased by two wives in 1983 and 2001 and was proud of the fact that he had married two good women.
