Fair Winds and Following Seas
RM2 Guy Cornett
Following a second stroke on September 16, 2014 our friend and shipmate passed away. Guy reported fresh from RM A school in June of 71 to the USS Marvin Shields DE-1066, home ported at 32nd Street Naval Station San Diego, Ca. Guy was the founding force behind the USS Marvin Shields Association. He started with the thought of gathering a few of the Radiomen from the early 70's and from that grew our association. With his direction, dedication and leadership we have enjoyed 5 reunions together bringing old and new friends and shipmates together.
Guy hailed from Big Sandy Montana. After leaving the Navy in 1974, he returned to Montana where he earned a degree in architecture. While attending school he met his wife Renee. They built their life together in Austin Texas.
You will be missed shipmate, fair winds and following seas.
