RIP Special Forces Sergeant Major Ricardo Ramon Alvirez

Received this from his son today:
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a great husband, father, grandfather,soldier and friend to many. Special Forces Sergeant Major Ricardo Ramon Alvirez died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 92 after a long bout with cancer. He will be missed by many as the world is a better place for all he gave to family country and friends. Services have yet to be determined but are projected in 2 to 3 weeks. We will keep you posted. Rest In Peace with the big Jump Master in the sky.
