I do not know the exact dates of the service aboard the James Madison, but John G. (Guy) Cesare, Jr. served aboard the Madison for some time (and he took great pride in it). Following his service in the Navy, he worked as a nuclear engineer in various capacities for several companies (though he took a sabbatical to also attend seminary and teach high school as well). He was stricken with cancer in late 2012 and succumbed to the disease on January 8 of this year.
For those who may be interested, from Guy’s CaringBridge page, this is the information on the funeral and memorial service arrangements:
It is with mixed emotions that we share with you that Guy passed away peacefully on Wednesday evening, January 8th. We will all surely miss Guy but are comforted in knowing that he is now in Heaven with our Lord and no longer suffering. Please know that your love and prayers brought enormous comfort and strength to Guy.
