In Memoriam: F/Lt (Retired) Sam Kingdon, CD

Sadly, we announce the passing of F/Lt (Retired) Sam Kingdon, CD of 809 Newark RCACS’ Squadron Sponsorship Committee. Sam was an avid supporter of our cadets for many years and the loss of his input (and wry wit) will be felt for years to come.

Rest well, Sam. Thank you for your commitment and for giving us an example to follow.

Passing of Capt Brian Howard, CD

It is with sadness that I must announce yesterday afternoon’s passing of Capt Brian Howard, CD. Capt Howard was 809 Newark’s seventh Commanding Officer, serving in the role from 1987 to 1991. His contribution to our squadron has already been commemorated by the Captain Brian Howard Memorial Award for Squadron Warrant Officer and his ongoing commitment to the entire Niagara Air Group will not soon be forgotten.

The experiences that we pass to others are what make us immortal. Thank you for being a friend to all of us, Brian.
