DL Capt. William Poddick Jr.

Military veteran,  DL Capt. William Poddick Jr.
October 14, 1938 ~ April 18, 2018

Belated news... as noted this month in ALPA’s magazine In Memoriam Column, the passing of Delta Golden Wings member retired Delta pilot Captain William Poddick Jr., age 79.  I believe born/raised in Florida and a military veteran, Captain Poddick joined Delta Air Lines 06-13-1966 and retired with Delta in May 1997.  He was based earlier at Miami and DFW, then 031/ATL at the time of his retirement.  Captain Poddick had most recently resided in Tavernier, FLorida.  No other details could be found. 
If anyone has additional information to share, corrections/updates are always appreciated.
            Thank you,

Bill was a good friend for many years when we flew out of Dallas for Delta. He was a member of the Navy Skeet Team and taught Carolyn and I to shoot sheet before we both began a long stretch of competetive skeet shooting. He was also an expert in shooting International Skeet and live pigeons. Bill and I also did a lot of bird hunting in Texas and shared a rather perilous goat hunt in Alaska. He was a unique individual.

  1. Willie was my best friend for 10 years, the last 10 years of his life. He lived two streets away from me in Tavernier Florida. I would love to give you information, Trinity
