Greg Fessler Memorial Service, Sailor, Rest your Oar!
Bremerton Base members, near 18, were in attendance at Greg's memorial service at the Christian Life Center in Port Orchard, Friday afternoon, August 1.
Two to three hundred people were attendance. It was clear that Greg, a local boy, was highly respected as a person and a submarine veteran. We made comments about Greg when attendees were asked for input.
Greg's participation in base activities was also shown in a very nice video tribute.
Connie Fessler Sends:
"Please pass on to all the other sub vets for their attendance at the memorial service. Seeing all those guys with their vests on made me so proud to have been a part of that special organization.
Thanks for all the help you have given us.
Connie (and family)"
