My condolences to the William (Bill) Frught family. I served with CTOC Bill Frught in the CINCPACFLT Staff, SPINTCOMM Center. He was a truly wonderful human being and a great personality. My time there was from Aug 1980 to Aug 1983. I will remember Chief Frught as a dedicated family man and a sailor who loved our country.
Rest in Peace Shipmate!

Our family lost one of the most strongest, intelligent, hard working, silly, encouraging, fun-loving man today. You welcomed me into your family over 27 years ago and treated me like the daughter you never had. You were more then just a father in law; you were the best father figure and taught me so much over the years. I am a better person for knowing you. I am forever grateful that I had the honored to be your daughter. Thank you. You're pain free now. Rest in Peace Dad you will be missed so much and by so many. You will always have a special place in My heart. Love you 🖤

Bill & I was stationed together in Monterey, CA from 1988-1991. Bill was “the Chief” for our group. He was an exceptional leader and mentor.
Machelle & I are lifting Karen, Jeff and Billy in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Bill was a true friend and we enjoyed spending our time with you guys.
We’re not going to be able to attend the celebration of his lift, but you will be in our thoughts.

Bill and I served together at CNO SPINTCOMM, in The Pentagon in the late 70s / early 80s, which seem like so long ago. A bond of friendship is something very special among Sailors, especially CTs.
I am proud to call him friend and shipmate.
May he rest in peace at the side of our Supreme Commander.
Your time on Earth and duty is fulfilled, Chief. We have the watch.

Condolences and prayers to the family. I am so sorry....Bill was one of the very best friends and co-workers I could have had in my postal time.. And I ALWAYS LOVED hearing his stories about his military career. And all his projects on his house. Bill, you were a great friend and will be missed greatly.
