My husband Russell Madsen met Van when they both worked at TWA. They became friends and I met his sweet wife Mary. They were such a fun couple we kept in touch as much as possiblle. RUSS Worked in Hydraulics and passed in July 2007. Condolences to the family

A true friend for many years. I enjoyed every shared encounter. He was a member of the TWA family that so many of us were blessed to be a part of. The memories are countless.
God bless and keep him.
Condolences to his family.

I have known Harold for over 58 years, a great friend and outstanding Marine.
Harold and I met 1962 at our first duty station at Camp Pendleton, CA Delta Company 1/1.
We trained all over the Far East for a 13 month tour of duty, 1963-64 as Hotel Company 2/9 and training that would prepare us for Vietnam.
We came back to Camp Pendleton CA as Delta Company 1/7.
Once again we went back to the Far East for another 13 months this time in Chu-Lai, South Vietnam 1965-66.
After Vietnam around 2006 Harold and I met up again at a Delta Company 1/7 reunion in Sarasota, FL and this is where my wife Sid and I met Harold's lovely wife Mary.
As the years went on I met the rest of Harold's family at 1/7 Marine reunions in Washington DC and the dedication of a monument to the Marines of 1/7 that we were in Vietnam with.
A great family man, good friend and outstanding Marine!

Deepest condolences to the Vandeloo Family.. I met and worked with and around Van ( as I called him ) at the TWA Overhaul Base. Whenever a need was required on a aircraft metal job that I was working and needed a special tool or insight on how to go about doing the job I knew I could always count on Van to the base be there for help... He fabricated many items while he worked in the Hobby Shop which was a support system for the entire hangar.. He retired before I did and only saw Van on occasion when he visited base. I will always say about Van is that whenever any person needed Van's assistance he could be counted on to help.. Honor to have known Van.. Rest in Peace . Tom Bianco.... Effort ,Pa...
