Monterey County Herald, CA April 1, 2000
Captain Harold A. Sommer, U.S. Navy (retired), died Monday, March 27 at Hospice of the Central Coast after a courageous fight against a lengthy illness, at the age 0f 86. Born in St. Louis, MO, he had lived in Monterey for 13 years. Captain Sommer was a FBY “Black Cat” Squadron Commander in the Pacific during World War II and was awarded the Silver Star and DFC. IN 1949, he completed postgraduate studies at the NPGS in Monterey. Later, he served as Naval Attache to Turkey and as a Staff Officer with BATO in Washington D.C. and CINCNEIM in London. He was an adventure traveler and an ardent student of a broad range of subjects including ancient history, cultures of the world, and the origin of man. Services with military honors will be held on April4 at the San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery. Captain Sommer is survived by his wife Viola of Monterey; son Geoffrey of Santa Monica and Jeremy of Mountain View, daughters, Freya of Pacific Grove and Stephanie of Virginia, and a granddaughter. The family suggests memorial contributions to Hospice of the Central Coast, Monterey.
