Timothy Mooney

In Memoriam

August 21, 1948 - June 25, 2024

Tim was hired by FTL on May 8, 1978, unfortunately succumbing quickly to a cancer diagnosis and passing shortly after attending the Fort Worth reunion with his friend Stacey Kidder (shown below with Tim).  The following was sent to us by her.

"Our 2024 Eclipse Reunion will be the last time we share time with Timothy Mooney.  He passed away shortly after the reunion, on June 25, 2024 at the age of 75.  He was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and after graduation from college, he became a US Navy A-7 pilot.  He then became an Airline Captain Pilot for Flying Tigers/FedEx on an MD-11.  He has resided in Baton Rouge, LA for the past two decades.  His hobbies included aviation mechanics, swimming and golf.  He is survived by his son, Robert Landon Mooney and his girlfriend, Stacey Kidder." 

According to Stacey there are no present plans for a service for Tim.  Rest In Peace Tim.
