Re: Phil Brown Passing

I never served with Phil (The Fonz) either but he was the Detailer when the McCloy returned from the Med in 1981. Denny Conrad had found out that I was not on the Chief's List which made the Homecoming a little less enjoyable. After a week or so of standdown, I called Phil to discuss some personnel changes. I introduced myself as OTA1 Moseler and he said who! I repeated myself and he said you mean Chief Moseler! I didn't quite know what to say and he went on to explain how that happened. Needless to say, it made my day! RIP Shipmate. Our sincere condolences to Phil's family.

Re: Phil Brown Passing

A good man, with a sense of humor. He helped a lot of careers.

For your consideration....Below is a link to Phil's "Find A Grave"memorial. In respect for grieving families, Find A Grave makes recent memorials inaccessible for a 90 day period. Phil's memorial should be accessible by 30 April 2023. There is no cost; anyone can view the memorial, leave a virtual "tribute" such as a flower, flag, etc. There are special icons available for veterans, police, etc.

At the very bottom of the Memorial is a "We Remember" link. Stories, anecdotes, etc can be entered here, again, at no cost.

*************************************
This is an amazing way to keep memories of departed friends & family fresh in our hearts & minds.
If you know of other IUSS mates that have passed, memorials can be made for them as well.

Two accessible memorials of departed IUSS folks:

If you have questions, ask. I'm a "Graver" myself.

Re: Phil Brown Passing

Ed, where is Phil interred. Any link for an obit. EKD

Re: Phil Brown Passing

Phil is at Arlington.

He has an on-line "Find-A-Grave" memorial at

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/249157145/philip-lee-brown

The site is free. Phil's obit is posted on the site. You can leave a virtual flower, flag, etc. There is also a "We Remember" section where you can share your memories of Phil with a much wider audience.
