ONA CREW REMEMBERS STU
Sorry to hear about Stu Wotton, we worked
with him in the training department, a
very nice man. My deepest felt
condolences to his family.
From Marie Brennan, Florida
I am sorry to lose Stu Wotton along with
all the others, a friend and excellent
crew member who I flew with many times.
I knew he lost his son at 9-11 and take
some refuge in my grief knowing that he
is with him now. Best regards to all,
George Flavell, Florida
I was sorry to hear that Stu Wotton died,
he was a great guy. Below photographs are
from the ONA Training Department in 1969.
I was working with Marliese Berger and Judy
Lonergan at that time.
To start with, there is the photo of the
gorgeous Marie Brennan, Stu Wotton, Scottie
and me (Maggie Lloyd) taken in April 1969.
The second photo is of Frank Schooley at
his graduation April 1969. Both Stu and
Frank were instructors. Rest in peace,
Greetings from Maggie Lloyd Zeibak,
