FRANK SZARO IN MEMORIAM
REST IN PEACE




Frank Szaro was a flight engineer 
with ONA from 1968 to 1978.  

He passed away on June 19, 1983 
from a sudden heart attack.  

Frank was working with Capitol Airlines 
at the time. Frank lived in Rhode 
Island and flew out of JFK. 

Flying for ONA was Frank´s favorite job.

Frank left wife and six children to
whom ONA Crew extend their deepest
felt condolences.

Frank´s son Scott Scaro, visited Oahu 
March 2005 with his wife - his dad used
to say it was his favorite layover.  

They even got to experience a go-around 
on that 45 degree angle tricky approach 
to the runway.  They also got a chance 
to eat in Chuck's Steakhouse just before 
it closed for good while they were there.  
The restaurant is in the basement around 
the corner from the hotels on Waikiki Beach.  



The Final Flight

© By Patty L. Hamon


I watched a shooting star
as it raced across the sky.
I was awestruck by it's beauty
in the darkness of the night.
Surrounding it like diamonds,
like tiny twinkling lights,
a million shining brothers
witnessing it's flight.
Sometimes in the evening
I will stand outside my door
and admire the peaceful heavens
and I'll glimpse a shooting star.
I'll wonder at it's glory
and the nature of all things,
at the silence of it's dying
and sweet sadness, it's death brings.
When the angels look down on us
as we go about our lives,
to them, a fleeting moment
like the shooting stars, we spy,
will our passing go unnoticed
into the darkest night?
Will we be a brilliant beacon,
like that star on it's last flight?
Lord, I want to shine that brightly
and like moths drawn to a flame,
bring others to Your mercy
and honor to Your name.
And when my days are finished
may You look upon my life
like a glorious shooting star
as I take my final flight
