DC was a leader, mentor, and father figure to all Marines. His electric personality motivated any and everyone to do whatever it took to get the mission accomplished. His legacy will echo on for ever in all those whom he touched and made smile. I attribute a lot of my success while I served to his leadership and guidance.

You’ll be forever missed! Rest in peace Warrior!
