A proud native of Louisiana, Stigler passed away Nov. 13, 2016, leaving the small island community in mourning. Stigler had worked at the Roi-Namur Power Plant for close to 10 years, mak ing scores of close friends along the way, both at the plant and elsewhere in the small island community. Some of Stiglers family members made the long trek from the United States to the northern tip of Kwajalein Atoll to attend the memorial ceremony. Stiglers daughter Kaleb Birdie Stigler, also from Louisiana, told personal anec dotes of her fathers antics as a profes sional prankster and loving father. Members of Stiglers Roi rat family echoed his daughters sentiments, some telling hilarious stories of a man who loved to laugh just as much as he loved to cook, feed his neighbors and scare the wits out of them with rubber masks. During his 58 years of life, Stigler touched the lives many people. Some of their stories, told during the memorial ceremony, are printed below. Kaleb Birdie Stigler You all, obvi ously, know my dad. He raised me to be just like him, and anyone whos had a conversation with meJerry knows knows that Im the miniature Bryan. My dad was more than my dad. He was my teacher. He showed me things across the world. He taught me to be more humble. We experienced life anywhere, from having to eat tomatoes for dinner because we were so broke and couldnt get anything else, to traveling the world, going to see Thailand, the Philippines, to doing things together through time. Stigler continued: I remember be ing a little girl. We grew up in southern Louisiana. We had seven acres of land in the middle of nowhere. We had this country house, and my brother was sitting in the bedroom. It was nighttime. It was an old wooden house, and his bed was right by the window. And my dad, as everyone knows, likes to prank people and scare the crap out of them. So, he thought it would be funnyme being B r y a n S t i g l e r 1 9 5 9 2 0 1 7

He goes out the front door, and he doesnt know that Im behind him. So, before hes able to sneak up to the window, I got to sneak up to him and [scare him] in the middle of the dark in the country. And the man about pooped his pants. She concluded: The man taught me a lot of things. I lost my best friend. it humbles me even more to know thats the man who raised me. The same man that all of you came here to celebrate. Thank you all very much.

I never really got to hang out with Bryan too much. He was mid-shift, and I was day shift. Wed meet each other, passing in the morning and say, Hey, and that was about it. Id party with him every once in a while on the back porch, a famous place. Ill miss him; he was fun. Dan Gunter I knew him sort of in two Namur Dolphins Scuba Club for Does anyone know how long?

5 SOW WELCOME AT MEMORIAL GARDENS Helping hands are welcome at the Kwajalein Memorial Gar dens. Built on the site for the Hydroponic Gardens in 1973, the lush space once served as a popular gathering place for parties and plant lovers. Today, areas of the site have been adopted by some Kwaj growers. James and Eleanor Talich, Cynthia Pavia and Barry Grinter are frequent visitors. But remaining over grown plots offer other residents a chance to get their green on. The garden contains different species of palm trees, indig head trees makes the garden an ideal place to escape the heat of the day on the weekends. The area comes equipped with a toolshed and potting sup plies for the site. In the early spring of 2016 Pavia and Grinter began to maintain a corner of the grounds that includes a small healthy foods, Pavia cultivates medicinal plants and several species of decorative and practical plants. It would be great if people would come adopt a space here to keep up, said Pavia, eyeing a large cactus surrounded by If you dont have a green thumb, the garden still needs help with one important task: moving fallen fronds and coconuts to collection locations at the edges of the grounds. The coconut crabs eat the inside, leave the husk, and that lem, said Pavia. Space is available to cultivate a wide variety of plants, but all non-native species must be kept in pots or planters. New comers and visitors are advised that established garden plots should not be disturbed. For safety and security, it is not OK to eat produce from established garden plots, or to remove equip ment and tools from the garden. The best thing new growers and visitors can do is to respect the adopted spaces. This will ensure that the garden continues to be a free zone for everyone to enjoy the outdoors and try new agricultural techniques. Really, I experiment, said Pavia. I order in the seeds and try down here to keep this place nice for everyone. The most im portant thing people can do is to visit often to enjoy this place. U.S. Army photos by Jessica Dambruch


6 IN MEMORIAM Jobonean Hermon KRS is sad dened by the recent passing of our colleague, Jobonean Hermon. He was 58 years old. Hermon began his career on Roi in 1984, working for Global Associates in the Building and Grounds Department. Two years later he transferred to the Carpenter shop. In 1991, Jobonean started working at the KREMS Work Center as an antenna gen eral helper, and in December 2008 he transferred to TRADEX to work in the antenna maintenance group. Hermon was very dependable and hard work ing, and he was always willing to lend a hand to all departments at TRADEX. Outside of work, Hermon was well known in the Eniburr community for volunteering his time to help his com munity. One of Hermons most memo rable achievements was the effort he put forward to help build a new church for the Enniburr community, a project that he spent more than four years working free of charge. He is survived by his wife Rosie Her mon, daughters Jessica and Kathreen Hermon, sons Hernist and Terist Her mon and grandson Kobonald Johnny. Hermon will truly be missed in the Roi-Namur and Eniburr communities. Leto Kallep Friends and cowork ers were saddened to learn of the re cent death of Leto Kallep. Kallep had been a member of the Solid Waste and Grounds Department since he started his employment with Chugach in March of 2003. Kallep was a hard worker and took very seriously the responsibilities as sociated with his position as a driver. He was a dependable and polite person whom you could count on when you needed help. Kallep was very friendly, and he always had a smile on his face. Kallep is survived by his wife Bira, his daughter and two sons. Kallep will be sincerely missed by all who knew him.

After spending three summer seasons in Antarctica, a seaside getaway seemed like the ideal place for the new clubs supervisor to thaw out. Her idea helped at Emon Beach, Jan. 16, during the second Beach Bar event. The cash-only Beach Bar invites beachgoers to queue up at noon to enjoy frozen drinks and cocktails made by Ocean View Club bartenders Peter Janer and Liz Burns. Popular items can range from frozen stawberry daiquiris to mimosas. Last Monday, it was an impe rial bloody mary, made with a house blend of pepper infused vodka and the works. The event gives Carlson and her staff a chance to get extra creative, Carlson says. But it takes a lot of work. We have to prepare ahead of time for the Beach Bar, she says. This is not something we just wake up and do. Carlson began to hone her mixology skills 10 years ago while studying Russian language and literature (bartending is a great solution to achieve the college work-life balance). She can mix up anything in the book, but her drink of choice is still a shot of good whiskey or a beer. If you enjoyed the Beach Bar, let Carlson know. She hopes the special event can become a regular monthly activity, and she welcomes recommendations for mu sic and playlists. Bartender Liz Burns mixes drinks for Kwaj residents during the second Beach Bar event, Jan. 16, at Emon Beach. U.S. Army photo by Jessica Dambruch U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll Facebook page.

9 running to this day, and Im sure very soon here we will miss him a whole lot more. Because none of us have any idea how to do anything that he did, and its cate what we saw [him do]. Gunter continued, quoting a line from the movie Secondhand Lions: A mans body may grow old, but inside his spirit can still be as young and as restless as ever. He had more spirit than one man, and I dont believe Ive met anyone that that was more true of. Chris Bennis Anyone who knew Bry an knew that he liked to tell stories and jokes. For me, every time Id see him, hed have a new story or something to say. And the majority of the time what he said would offend half of me, and the other half of me would think it was as funny as hell. ... So, even if I didnt agree with what he said, I still had to laugh at it. And I think that was true with prob ably the majority of the people here. The thing about Bryan is he didnt really care what you thought about him, and I love that. I mean, youve got to admire that. He didnt live his life, trying to get gratitude and worrying about what oth er people think of him. He lived his life how he wanted to life his life, and thats something thats admirable. But its hard to do. Bennis continued: Bryan liked to play practical jokes a lot. So, if you ever went little rubber rat hanging out somewhere thats going to scare the hell out of you. Or hell put a little rubber snake under your chair or some other rubber items that he may have had. But thats the way he was, and he always tried to see the lighter side of things and make people smile. And I think that was his goal, that when he saw you he was getting a smile out of you. And thats great, you know, to live your life on a daily basis to try and make people happy. Thats a wonderful thing, and I think were all going to miss it. Mark Swain One time [Bryan] says, Yeah, when my time comes, I want to come sliding into those pearly gates, all twisted up, covered in crap [and say], Hey, Peter, get out here! Lets do it again! Rey Baldado He was a brother, a good friend of mine. He was the type of guy that would be friends with anybody. ... I loved that guy very much. Jim Friedenstab out here 4.5 years ago, I had never had lobster. Bryan gave me lobster, and that was a very touching gesture for me. Be cause, you know, people dont do that. it was Halloween or not, and Morris was the lead mechanic then, and Bryan liked to get masks. Rubber masks. And turned on the light, and heres Bryan sitting there with his mask in his chair. And I thought Morris was going to have a heart attack. There were two sides to Bryan: a little angel and a little devil. Rest in peace, brother. Jerry Wilkins I loved hearing his You want to buy a pencil story, and he loved telling it. Im going to miss him. DJ Castle One time, Bryan was in the hospital for some reason on Kwaj, and he had come back after getting stitches or something like that. He came back to Roi, and JoDanna and I ran into him in the hallway and asked him how his stay was on Kwaj. And he said, Oh, it was pretty good. I was trying to get one of them cute nurses to give me a sponge bath. And JoDanna said, We could have sent Jon in. And thats the only time Bryan didnt have a comeback. Laura Pasquarella-Swain We all know that Bryan does not want us tearyeyed and crying. He wants us to cel ebrate and remember him for the crazy, STIGLER, FROM PAGE 9 wacky guy he was. He was a wonder ful human being. There wasnt a thing he wouldnt do for any one of us on this island. Pasquarella-Swain continued: A bunch of us were down at the beach one day. And Bryan shows up at the beach. And Im like, Oh my God, Bryan, you havent come over to the beach in forever. And hes like, Yeah, yeah, yeah. I need to get a little sun. I need to get out of the room, move off the back porch. So hes got a towel wrapped around him, and he makes his way to the water, and he was pretty pasty white. You know, the guy did work at nighttime. So he didnt see a whole lot of daylight. And he does one of gles his butt, whips that towel off, and there he is standing there in a banana thong. And I thought I was going to die right then and there. And if I remem ber correctly, I think his daughter sent him several pairs of them, and I thought, Wow, thats an interesting father-daugh ter relationship. And here comes Bryan down in the water, with this thong on. And those of us that were at the beach that day, we had to be laughing for a good 5-10 minutes, crying, crying so hard. We did get pictures of that; however, we decided we wouldnt put them in our lit tle slideshow tonight. But anyone whod like to see them, let me know. The crowd steps forward to light electronic candles during Bryan Stiglers memorial ceremony Jan. 13 on Roi.
