Lieutenant Commander Richard C. West

Jun 03, 1931 - Feb 23, 2024

location-icon

San Diego, CA

Lieutenant Commander Richard C. West, USN (Ret), was born in Hobart, Oklahoma, to James J, Jr. and Edith C. West, both school teachers. After numerous moves, his family settled in Ponca City Oklahoma, where he attended Attucks High School. He participated in numerous sports, community services and joined the Army Reserves on his eighteenth birthday in 1949. LCDR West applied to and was accepted into Wichita University (PREMED). During his first semester, his Reserve Unit was mobilized in support of the Korean Crisis. Segregation was still prominent at the time, and Richard endured disparate treatment as the lone minority serving in an all white Unit. Despite facing unimaginable obstacles, he received the Oklahoma Reserve Outstanding Soldier Award in June 1950. After he refused a Regular Army Commission, Richard reported to Korea, where he participated in the search for the downed aircraft flown by Distinguished Flying Cross recipient ENS Jessie Brown, the first African-American aviator to complete the United States Navy's basic flight training program. Richard remained in Korea, until President Truman issued an Executive Order prohibiting Reservists from serving in combat operations, and was sent to Camp Roberts, California, where he served as a combat experienced instructor until he was released from Active Duty in 1953. LCDR West resumed his pursuit of higher education by enrolling at the University of Oklahoma, as the first known African American Undergraduate majoring in Pharmacy. He used the GI Bill to take flight lessons. In January 1955, LCDR West transitioned into the Navy after taking and passing the Naval Cadet test. He then entered flight training in Pensacola, Florida. While training in Pensacola, he was fortunate to run into trailblazers in Naval Aviation: LT Frank Peterson, Lester Long, Bill Deshazer, and Lloyd Roberts. In August 1956, Richard earned his coveted Wings of Gold in Corpus Christi, Texas, becoming the fifth African American to be designated a Naval Aviator. A loner by circumstance, he caught the attention of ADM Gravely, who assumed the role of Richard’s Mentor. Throughout his distinguished career, LCDR West flew eleven different types of aircraft, deploying to numerous theaters of operation around the globe. During one flight out of the Florida Keys while patrolling Russian vessels entering Cuba in August 1962, Richard’s aircraft was fired upon by hostile forces, one of the headliner news events preceding the Cuban Missile Crisis. LCDR West joined the Naval Academy Navy Recruitment Blue and Gold program in May 1971 and worked for ADM Zumwalt in the Pentagon in Washington DC. In July 1971, he was asked to participate in an effort that ultimately established the National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) in 1972. He was recognized for his contributions as a Founding Member of NNOA at their Annual Symposium in San Diego in August 2023. Following his retirement from Naval Service in 1974, LCDR West remained actively engaged supporting communities across the country: Associate Pastor, New Hope Baptist Church; State and District Chaplain with the American Legion; Southern California Chaplain AMVETS; Supervisory Deputy, United States Marshal, Southern District of California; United States Navy Memorial; Midway Museum; Executive Lions Club; Fleet Reserves; Disabled American Veterans; Masonic Groups; National Association of Federal Employees; and the San Diego Chapter of the National Naval Officers Association. Lieutenant Commander Richard West is survived by his wife, Pacita West; his daughter Carolyn West; and his daughter Martha D Teate. A viewing for Navy Lieutenant Commander Richard will be held Thursday, March 14, 2024 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at New Hope Friendship Baptist Church, 2205 Harrison Ave., San Diego, CA 92113, followed by a celebration of life from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Navy Lieutenant Commander Richard will be laid to rest in Miramar National Cemetery, San Diego, CA.

San Diego, CA

Cita Aguila Burns, age 85, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 09, 2024. Cita was born in La Chorrera, Panama on April 27, 1938, to Juan Bautista Aguila Duarte and Maria del Socorro Aguila Castillo. Cita immigrated to the United States, living in San Diego, California in the early 1960’s. Cita was a vibrant, fun, beautiful woman. She met the love of her life John J. Burns in San Diego and after a short courting, three weeks, were married for 50 years. They moved to Lansdale, PA where they raised their two sons, John, and Jeffrey Burns. After 30+ years, they moved back to San Diego to retire and enjoy their family and friends. Cita was the youngest of seven children, and is survived by her brother, Franklin Aguila, who fondly referred to her as, Tripa de pollo, and sister-in-law Ana Powan Aguila. She is predeceased by her brothers Ismael “Men”, Ananias “Nano” Aguila, sisters Maria Isabel Aguila, Claudia Morrison, and Dolores Blas, parents Juan Bautista Aguila Duarte and Maria del Socorro Aguila Castillo, sister in-laws Yolanda (Frank) Aguila, and Carmen (Ananias) Aguila, and brother in-laws Angel (Dolores) Blas, and Donald (Claudia) Morrison. Cita was devoted to her family and loved traveling, cruising, camping, hiking, and adventuring with her sons and their families. She especially prioritized taking her medicine, a nightly glass of red wine! John, her eldest son, is married to Laurie Kay Burns, who she nicknamed blondie. Cita loved the numerous road trips she took with her husband, Jack, to Colorado where John and Laurie reside. John and Laurie will cherish the memories they shared with “Mamacita”, celebrating her birthday’s, drinking wine, and enjoying life to the fullest with her. Their favorite memory of Mamacita is hearing her call their Dad, “Jack-shit”! Jeffrey, her youngest son, gave Mamacita two cherished blessings, Abigail (Abby), and Emma Burns. Cita adored her two “muñequitas” as she called them. Cita spent time with Jeff and his wife Mariuxi in Florida. Cita’s love of her family extended to her nieces and nephews on both the Aguila and Burns sides. She is survived by nieces and nephews Cecilia and Graciela, Angelica (Jorge, Yanina, Cristian), Angel (Maricela, Larissa, Jessica), Lorena (Sofia), Sandra, Charo (Gary, Gabriel, Ryan, Marco), Einar (Frances, Franklin, Nicole, Jonathan, Denielle), Liza (Michael, John, Christian), Terry (Sommer, Alex), Jeanie (Alan, Serena, Adam), Timm (Corrie, Tyler, Bailey), Jean and Harry, Leo and Claire (Kathy, Beverly, Jennifer, Jeffrey, Andrew, Marianne), Jim (Karen, Ryan, Jessica, Robert, Debbie). One of Cita’s favorite pass times was spending times with her girlfriends and neighbors in Chula Vista. She was part of a lovely group of ladies who played Bunko. They surrounded her with love and cherished her lively spirit. Cita was so grateful to her neighbors who kept an eye on her and helped her whenever she needed. Another one of Cita’s favorite things to do was going to the casinos with her sister-in-law Ana and her late brother Ismael. She really enjoyed the slot machines, and boy was she lucky. Cita was a devout Catholic, she prayed her rosary and kept all her loved ones in her prayers always. She was especially devoted to the Virgin Mary. Cita was a passionate woman, she loved to dance and shake those Panamanian hips. She had a signature move where she bent her knees and swirled her hips to the instruction of her hands. If you knew Cita, you knew her move. Even in her final days, Cita danced in her chair and had a smile on her face. Her jovial spirit will live on in all who loved her. The caring and loving staff at Waters Edge, Assisted Living, ensured she was genuinely cared for in every way, including cheering her on as she danced for them in her chair, chanting, “go mamacita, go mamacita”.
