John Carl Devitto

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by G. Jerry Merges on June 22, 2016:

My friend, classmate and brother in arms is now in the loving arms of his beautiful wife. We rejoice in a life well lived.

John and I shared KDET sports broadcasting for our cadet days including all football games at home, the ARMY-navy classics, especially 1964, baseball, basketball including the NIT from Madison Square Garden, hockey, track, soccer, and lacrosse, Wherever we could lug the black boxes and find a telephone line, John was there to get us set up and bring the sports to the barracks.

His enthusiasm and zest for life were contagious and every day spent in John's company was a blessing. I shall miss him until we meet again.

Well Done, my brother.
