On behalf of myself & three brothers, It is with regret I inform you of my father’s (Carmen Romano) passing on August 20, 2006, losing his battle with lung cancer. My father proudly served on the U.S.S. Caperton between the years 1943-46.

Throughout his battle with this terrible disease, he never once complained & was very proud of his years in the Navy.

Besides a caring & loving husband to my mother, grandfather of seven & great grandfather of one, always cherished his time with his family. An avid New York Yankees fan, could always be found watching the game & yelling at the TV when things weren’t going well.

He always had a great time at the reunions as well.
