To the family of Marvin Ruzansky, on behalf of all of us at SUBVETS and me personally, I want to extend our sincere condolences on Marvin's passing.
I enjoyed the times we would see him at the SUBVETS WWII Christmas parties, and the times we were able to chat when he would come to dinners at the clubhouse. His presence will be missed.
I'm very sorry that the SUBVETS will not have a presence at his funeral. I am just seeing this at 07:05 this morning and I don't have sufficient time to put the word out and assemble our Honors Detail.
"There is a port of no return where ships may ride at anchor for a little space. And then some starless night the cable slips leaving an eddy at the mooring place. Gulls veer no longer, Sailor rest your oar. No tangled wreckage will be washed ashore."
SHIPMATE Marvin Ruzansky . . . Rest your oar!
