We are sad to announce the passing of shipmate T.J. Young ETN2(SS) 1971-1975 Blue Crew.
for a Memorial Service are pending. Here is a passage his wife posted on Facebook:
“It is with mixed joy and sorrow that I post this message. TJ went home to be
with the Lord peacefully, yesterday morning. Our family would like to thank you for all of your kind words and support. Details
on services are yet to come. I found his urn yesterday....it is so him......Cobalt blue with a mother of pearl anchor. He
has been my anchor for 41 years, Christ has been his anchor, and his submarine days with the "blue crew" were some
of his fondest memories. His love for the sea, and God's creation ran through his veins. One of the last times on the water,
he saw a huge leatherback sea turtle. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. "
With great sadness we announce the death of Shipmate David "Max" Hopkins.
Max served aboard the John C. Calhoun from 1968 until 1972. He was an EM on the Gold crew
