Greetings,
I don't recall seeing a post on this but Dick Keresey passed away on May 12, 2010.

I'm very pleased I had the chance to read his book and correspond with him about the 105 boat.

Thaanks for posting this link. I too was lucky to have talked with Dick several times. I found him to be very nice. He was always willing to share stories with me about his time spent on PT-105. I am sure many will miss him.............

David;
What a wonderful and gracious man. Thank you for letting us know about Mr Keresey, he is once again at the wheel of PT105 with ENS. John C. "Junior" Duckworth, at his side. I will pass on your information to Mr. Iles when I get home from work today.
Take care,
TED

I thought I saw his name listed in the last 'All Hands'. I most certainly enjoyed reading his
[redPT 105/red], some great stuff in there.

Ted,
I take it Mr. Iles wasn't aware either? Thanks for reaching out to him.

I think Mr. Keresey thought he was going to quietly sneak out without us noticing. I need to get my butt in gear and finish my 105 boat.
