“Forever Loved, Never Forgotten”

The Navy Gold Star Program is eternally grateful for the sacrifice of those Service Members who have died in service to our country. To help us to never forget, we have set up this tribute page to honor and remember the memory of those lives. If you would like to honor the memory of your Sailor, Soldier, Marine, Airman or Coast Guardsman through the Navy Gold Star website please submit your thoughts and a photo.

Demetrius was so close to 20 years of NAVY service (less than a month) from retirement when he passed away at the age of 38.

I still shoot billiards (Demetrius taught me this game at age 7) in honor of your memory.

It’s amazing to me how much my youngest son Richard favors Demetrius. It’s almost like I still have you in my life at times.

I will never forget you my one and only BROTHER rest in peace until we meet again in GLORY!
