Willie A. Carlton Death, Obituary – During his years as part of the MT Blue crew, Willie exemplified the values of dedication, teamwork, and unwavering commitment. His contributions to the crew and his dedication to his duties left an indelible mark on the submarine community. As we bid farewell to Willie, we honor his memory and service with the somber phrase, “Sailor rest your oar.” This phrase, deeply rooted in naval tradition, serves as a poignant reminder that a sailor’s watch has come to an end, and they can finally find peace in the arms of the deep.
Willie’s departure from our midst is felt deeply by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His dedication to his fellow crew members and his love for the sea united us in a bond that transcends time and space.
During this difficult time, our thoughts and prayers go out to Willie’s family, friends, and all those who shared his journey. May they find solace in the memories of his life, the friendships he forged, and the contributions he made to our nation.
As we remember Willie A. Carlton, may his spirit find tranquility in the waters he once sailed, and may his memory inspire us to continue striving for excellence and unity, just as he did during his time as part of the MT Blue crew.
