Memories Timeline


  1. Dad will always be remembered by so many people as a caring, brilliant man who was always polite and a gentleman with those around him. He cared deeply about his family, friends, pets, and all the plants and creatures sharing our world. He loved history, stomping across battlefields and imagining what life was like for the soldiers that fought there. He spent many hours tracking down family history and sharing the tales he discovered. We have many wonderful memories and believe he is at peace now. Love, Sara, Clif, and Caldwell

  2. I’m sorry to hear of Capt Babbitt’s death. He was my first submarine Captain in Key West, Fla in the mid-1950s. He was a great one to serve under. I really appreciated my time with him.

  3. Franklin Babbitt Fond memories of Frank go back to the 1960s when I met Frank and Norma in Moscow. I taught with Norma and my late husband John was Frank’s opposite number in the British Embassy. How Frank loved being in Russia and he never lost his love of the Russian language. He and John often exchanged notes in Russian and liked speaking to each other in Russian even up to the time of John’s death. When our 1st son was born we invited Frank to be James’ godfather, an obvious choice. Frank was a kind and inspiring person who inevitably passed on to James and then Pete his love of stamps, and Naval History. Our visits to Frannewood were always such fun and he took such pride in his farm,the animals and the lovely peacocks, not forgetting Bowser of course. A very special person,so proud of his family and extended family, remembering the Williams in upstate New York. We extend our love and sympathy to all the family at this sad time and wish we could be with you on Saturday. Jennie Varley
