I hit the beach with Archie many times while on the Archerfish and always had action packed adventures with him. He was a real true diesel boat sailor and I will cherish the memories of him forever.

I served with Archie on the Submarine Archerfish. Was there ever a dull moment onboard when he was around? For those of you who also served with him, you know the answer to that. He did his job and did it well. When a friend, family member, or even a shipmate passes, people always write what a great person this individual was and etc. Archie was a lot of fun to be around and although we communicated via computers, I will miss that part of our friendship. My sincerest condolences to Paula and all of his family at this time. Rest easy Arch.....we have the watch.
