Perch Base Holland Club and Life Member Bill Woolcott departed on Eternal Patrol on August 6, 2020.
Our condolences to Sharon, and the rest of the family.
Bill was a dual member with both Perch Base and Wisconsin Base, wintering in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Some of our membership will remember the many parades with the USS Phoenix (SSN‑702) that our Base participated in for Bill and the other residents of the Paradise RV Park on St. Patrick's Day.
