Dedicated to Friends, Past and Present
John was a member of Clansmen of VA46 while on active duty with the Navy and joined the Navy’s Salty Dogs of VA205 at Naval Air Station Atlanta after leaving active duty where he served as squadron landing signal officer, maintenance officer, executive officer and commanding officer.
He was hired by Southern Airways in 1973 where he flew as copilot on the Martin 404, copilot, captain and flight instructor on the DC9 and Boeing 757.
Toss a nickel on the grass fellow Southern family members and Salty Dogs of VA205, we have lost a good friend, pilot and squadron mate.
