Richard Stock served his country with distinction during WWII. He served on the USS Knapp DD-653, a Navy Destroyer in the South Pacific. His ship was engaged in nine major battles and was in Tokyo Bay for the surrender of Japan. He was well liked and a great shipmate that will be missed by all all of the men who served with him. We will keep the family in our prayers.
