Loss of crewman Bill Gale

It is with great sadness that I post the loss of DD 803 shipmate Bill Gale.

Dear Crew Members and Family Members,

On Sunday, August 17, 2014 our father, Irving (Bill) J. Gale joined our mother, Gini, in heaven. Dad had filled his bucket list by attending the Boston Navy Reunion and attending his granddaughter’s wedding at the end of July. Visitation is scheduled for Friday, August 22, 2014 from 4-7 pm at the Pederson-Volker Funeral Chapel located at 44 East Columbia St., Chippewa Falls, WI. 54729. 1-715-723-4649. The funeral service will be at Norte Dame Church on Saturday, August 23, 2014 @ 10:30 am.

Thank y’all for making Dad’s trip to Boston possible. He had been looking forward to it since the first letter was sent.

Love, Jodi Bilansky (daughter)
