Godfrey and I worked on several projects and he was fully involved providing both technical insight and hard work. Some of the projects were difficult with tight schedules, but Godfrey was always there lending his assistance and keeping us all in good humor.
He will be missed.
My condolences to Edna and sons and hope prayers will provide a joyful light to guide them and family through their grief.
To the Adamos Family, I worked with Godfrey early on in our careers at Dam Neck. He was a true professional with a wonderful sense of humor. He shared with great pride, many stories of the family that he treasured. May your memories of him help you through this difficult time.
Mrs. Adamos, We were so sorry to hear of your loss.
We have had the honor of getting to know Bert, Nichole, Brandon and Kaden over the past couple years. It is obvious that you and your husband raised Bert to be an incredible person.
Although we did not have the honor to meet your him, we can see through Bert what a great man he was. Please accept our condolences.
Godfrey, I developed a special relationship with him. He became my mentor when I was growing up and always looking up to him. Godfrey was always sharing his technical knowledge when sought for an advice. He started driving a tractor at the age of 7 or 8 and driving a jeep at the age of 9. Godfrey and I used to go hunting together. I admired him a lot for his marksmanship with both the airgun and the Marlin .22 caliber rifle. He was a good shot. Me and Uncle Godfrey lived in an apartment in Manila for about 6 months before Godfrey joined the Navy in 1968. I followed his footsteps and joined the Navy in 1969. My family and I visited Uncle Godfrey and his family in Virginia Beach in December 1980. Godfrey and Edna were very accomodating taking us around Norfolk. For that period of time Godfrey and I spent together, I never saw Godfrey ever mad or exuding a bad attitude. He was always in good spirit. He is a great loss to everyone and my dad would miss him dearly.
To Edna and Family,
I spent 2 summer vacations with him in Samal, Davao back in the 60’s. Growing up as a child, I developed a special relationship with him. He was my mentor and always looking up to him. He always shared his technical knowledge when sought for an advice. The last time we saw each other was in December 1980. Godfrey and Edna were very hospitable and accomodating taking us around Norfolk. For that length of time I have known Godfrey, he was always in good spirit and with a good sense of humor. He is a great loss to everyone and I would miss him dearly.
