Pig has departed

Ken Henry (Pig Pen or The Pigger) of the Sailor's Home in GulfPort Fl has departed on Eternal Patrol. Ken, Engineman Extraordinar, was on Archerfish during her time in LantFlt mapping the sea floor so the Boomers of the future could sail undetered, among other diesels he served on, became a volunteer Fireman in Fla afte retirement (tht is anther story), after his wife's demise Pigger moved to the Sailor's Home. More importantly became history keeper of SubVets WWII, researching and reporting Eternal Patrol notices of those heros who rode real submarines during that conflict referred to as WWII. I would call the Pigger and ask about a WWII Boat Sailor, he would email back with a history, naming the boats, War patrols, when & why change of rank (both directions), etc.
