Shipmate Passing

Greetings Altair Shipmates.

It is with deep regret that I announce that an Altair shipmate and a friend has passed.

Benjamin X. Wabich, RMSN, 1961-1962 passed away April 26, 2016 after a long illness.

I served with "BX" in the Altair radio room and we became good friends while aboard ship and ashore. He will be missed!

More information is available at:

The Wabich family can be reached at:

Best Regards, Charles
