CARES AND CONCERNSThank you to retired Delta Captain Ralph Wolken for sending the sad news of the death of former 700th pilot and retired Delta Air Lines Captain Andrew P.  'Andy' Brown.  Andy had been treated repeatedly this year for kidney failure but I haven't received the cause of death yet.  He was a C-124 pilot in the 700th MAS at Dobbins AFB during that era and was mobilized during the USS Pueblo Crisis in 1968-69.  He was born January 25, 1938 and hired by Delta July 3, 1967.  Expressions of condolence may be sent to his wife Charlotte at 934 S. Greenbrier Road, Nocona, TX 76255-4008, phone 940-825-5454.  I will forward the obituary when I see it.

As of 20:00 Sunday

While I was in Houston this past weekend I received some very sad news from Andy's wife, Charlotte. She informed me that Andy had passed away at approximately 02:40 AM on Friday, June 20. 

When I receive the pending details and/or information from the family I will forward them to you.  This happened rather quickly and is a shock to all of us.
