This message recently from Don Bissell's wife:

Hi, Jim, this is Don Bissell's wife, Sue. I just wanted to let you know that Don passed away Jan. 15. I don't know if he ever communicated that he had a motorcycle accident in 2005 that caused spinal cord injury resulting in quadriplegia. His last 9 years have been very painful and difficult. Your e-mails, especially the ones with humor, meant a lot to Don. He credited his Navy service for making him the man he was.
I would appreciate it if you could let others that he served with know about his death. He had a lot of good memories of his fellow radarmen aboard the Mahan DLG11.
