USS MAUNA KEA AE-22 Reunions
January 9, 1947- February 14, , 2018
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of
our shipmate and friend, Charlie McCain. He was a Boatswain's Mate,
who served on the Mauna Kea from 1965-1969.
Charlie was a loyal friend to his shipmates, and a mentor to those new
sailors onboard. He was always willing to share his knowledge and give the new guy a hand .
Charlie and Lynda have attended many of our reunions, including the last one in
Charleston, S. C. We enjoyed his sense of humor and smile.
His taste was simple - we didn't need to ask for his order for the reunion banquets. Just order his steak
and potatoes. If that wasn't available, a can of Vienna sausage would do.
Charlie, you will be missed.
...fair winds and following seas...
