Fred, you were my mother's (Shirley Jo Irwin Muse) Uncle. She spoke of you often when I was growing up. Thank you for your service to our country.

Not only was this man a great Marine, but he was a true and tested friend. He was also a loving husband and a wonderful father ... I should know, he was my Dad and I miss him so much ...
Simper Fi Dad ...
