hello I'm Brandon

My grandpa on my mom's side was named Robert Robbie. He was a Machinist mate on this ship I know he served 1952-1956 Im not exactly sure what exact years he was on the ship but I don't think he transferred to another ship. He was born in Minnesota and at one point he lived in California. Im writing because my family wants to know if any one here has any stories or pictures of him. I've passed away in Jan 2019. He told me quite a few stories but I can't remember them because I was a young kid when he told them to me. We have the blue 3 ring binder book you guys produced at some point that had the history of the ship and its information. I don't remember of my granthad his picture in there. Anyways you can private message me or email me. I'm just wondering if anyone knew him or remembers him thank you

Brandon

I am posting on behalf of my father Gary Fetrow. He loved the navy and loved the Tolovana. He was late diagnosed with Parkinsonism Dementia a few years ago, and unfortunately is unable to speak anymore. He still has his mind, just slow. I'm not sure if anyone remembers him, but if you do and you have any stories that I can read him I know it would brighten his days! In the Cruise Book for 72-73 his is pictured twice. On page 28 he is the far right, and then again on 29 he is the top right and also below on the bottom right, clean shaven.
When he left the service in '73 he returned home to OH where he would continue working as an electrical engineer until he computers replaced his job.
i look forward to any stories you have to share!!! I wish I had found this sooner. He has been home on hospice since Jan 2021. The cancer hit him first in 2003, but there is no coming back from the dementia.

I hope this finds you well and in good health.
Thank you, Anda Fetrow

I have been to several reunion with my shipmates and it is always great memories and times. I am now hosting the 2020 reunion in Tulsa and would like as many of my shipmates to join us there and get to know us. I would never change my time on board even with all the unreps we did. I am still in touch with some of the best friends I could ever have and the direction it put me on.

I am hoping to find others that were enlisted and aboard this ship during 1960 through 1964.

i am hoping I can get some feed back on medical conditions that have been filed with the VA.

Thanks,

Mike
