Ranger Neves (ArmyRanger.Com Founder) passed away

Post by Earthpig »

Since this site is built up of several sub-communities (DEPs, Civilians, Veterans, Rangers, Parents, etc), it is probably prudent to post this where all of you can read it.

Ranger Peter Neves (User Name: Spartan), who founded this site in December of 2002, passed away at home yesterday evening. Ranger Neves had been battling cancer for a long time. He is survived by his wife of 21 years and their daughter.

Ranger Neves served in 2nd Platoon, B Co, 2/75 from 1984-1987. Pete graduated Ranger School in Class #12/85. While in 2nd Ranger Bn, he served as a rifleman, AG, Machinegunner, went to HHC to work as the Bn Cdrs Driver/RTO (LTC Jefferey J. Ellis and CSM Leon-Geurerro), then returned to be a Team Leader. Pete departed as a SGT to the Q Course, where he graduated as an 18C. He later served in 2nd Bn, 1st SFG in the S-4 Shop. Pete also worked as a contractor in Iraq for Cochise Consultancy.

Ranger Neves, thanks for having the vision to build this site and for allowing it to evolve into what it is today. Rest In Peace, Amigo.

To be loved is to be fortunate, but to be hated is to achieve distinction.

Damn. I didn't really know Ranger Spartan; but, it feels like someone I knew is now gone.

RIP, Ranger Spartan.
