Central Florida Buccaneers Aviators' Heaven I hope there's a place way up in the sky, where old flyers can go on the day they die. A place where a guy can buy a cold beer, for a friend and a comrade, whose memory is dear. A place where no doctor or lawyer can tread, nor an FAA type would e'erbe caught dead. Just a quaint little place, kind of dark, full of smoke, where they like to sing loud, and love a good joke. The kind of a place where a lady could go, and feel safe and protected by the men she would know. There must be a place where old flyers go, when their flying is finished, and their airspeed gets low. Where the whiskey is old, and the women are young, and songs about flying and dying are sung. Where you'd see all the fellows who'd flown west before, and they'd call out your name, as you came through the door. Who would buy you a drink, if your thirst should be bad, and relate to others, "He was quite a good lad". And then through the mist, you'd spot an old guy, you had not seen in years, though he taught you to fly. He'd nod his old head, and grin ear to ear, And say, "Welcome, my son, I'm pleased that you're here. For this is the place where the true flyers come, when their journey is over, and their war has been won.They've come here at last to be safe and alone, from the government clerk, and the management clone,Politicians and lawyers, the Feds and the noise, where all hours are happy, and they're all good ol' boys. You can relax with a cold one, maybe deal from a deck, this is heaven my son..... You've passed your last check!" 2014 DOB Dec 1, 1931 DOH Nov 26, 1956 DOD Dec 18, 2014 Passed away Dec 18, 2015.

He had been suffering from the effects of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). In death he has been released from the grip of that terrible disease. His passing is a blessed relief and should be cause for celebration not sadness. His friends and family certainly celebrate the joyous events of his life, his love for his family, his service to his country and his devotion to his hometown, Pensacola. He was born in Pensacola and grew up on the tree-lined streets of East Hill with his mother, Mary Morgan Holsberry Gonzalez, father, Charles F. Gonzalez, Jr., and his sister, Rhoda Mary Gonzalez (Warren). After graduating in 1958 from Pensacola Catholic High he attended the University of North Carolina on a Navy ROTC scholarship. North Carolina did not just give him his education - - it was there he met and married his lifelong wife and partner, Mollie Russell Lewis (Gonzalez). He was commissioned an Ensign after graduation in 1962 and he and Mollie made their first of many moves - - back to Pensacola for Navy flight training. His Navy career, as a P-3 pilot, took Charlie and Mollie across the globe and provided the birthplaces for his four children. His oldest child, a son, Charlie, was born in Pensacola on the very day he made his first carrier landing on that venerable warship, USS Lexington. Three years later, while based in Hawaii with Patrol Squadron 22, he and Mollie welcomed twins, a daughter and son, Rhoda and Tom. Daughter, Ruth was born during his final tour, at VX-1 in Key West, Florida. He left the Navy as a Lieutenant in 1968 and took his flight skills to the private sector where he enjoyed a successful career as a commercial airline pilot. Over three decades he flew DC-8's, DC-10's, 727's, 737's and 747's with National Airlines, Pan Am World Airways and United Airlines. While his children were young he moved his family back to Pensacola. Later, with their children grown, he and Mollie took advantage of the last decade of his airline career and lived in Berlin, San Francisco, Boulder and Chicago before returning to Pensacola in retirement. He leaves behind many friends as well as beloved grandchildren to carry his memory into the future. Charlie and Annabelle Abalos Gonzalez gave him Morgan Elena Gonzalez. Ruth and Peter Bayer gave him Mollie Moran Bayer and Thomas Spencer Bayer. Rhoda and James Simkins gave him James Arthur Simkins, Jr. Tom and Jill Herriman Gonzalez gave him Gabrielle Jamie Gonzalez and Henry Wade Gonzalez. The family will have a private family memorial so keep those dark clothes in your closet. If you count yourself as his friend take a moment to recall a fond moment you shared with Charlie and let your smile shine. As a friend you already know he'd want you to save your flower money so go splurge on a bottle of wine or treat yourself to a good dinner that ends with a toast to Charlie - - husband, father, friend.

He began his flying career in the Army Air Corps on July 29, 1941, rising to the rank of Captain with the 441 Troop Carrier Group, 302nd sqdn. 9th air force and after the war served in the Berlin airlift. Returning home to Pennsylvania he was a pilot for Wined America Airlines and met his future wife Millie before being hired by National in 1951 when he moved to Miami. Like his contemporaries he was checked out on and flew many diverse aircraft in the span of a few short years, finishing his career in 1974 as a 727 Captain retiring early due to a medical condition. He was an old-school "by-the-book" pilot. Knowing how difficult it had been to earn a position with the Army Air Corps and National as he returned home from flying the Berlin airlift to discover that most pilot positions had already been filled, he always felt he owed National his loyalty.

The unexpected attention he received from young and old alike was a humbling experience for him. He was also an accomplished bookkeeper before the war as well as an accomplished mechanic, electrician and mason, he relished mastering hands-on trades. There was no job he wouldn't tackle. He is survived by his wife or 64 years, Millie, his son Larry and grandson Kevin. He always said that his years with National were the highlight of his life and was greatly saddened by the demise of the airline. His love for life was never more evident that when he spent time with his grandson Kevin. 2012 FE Gil Beauchesne From Bob Thrasher: "Spoke with Gil Beauchesne's wife Jane this morning.

Capt. Jerry Cobb Jerry R. Cobb—a decorated Vietnam veteran and a community leader in aviation—died peacefully on Sunday, October 10, in Atlanta with his family at his side. He was 70. Jerry will be remembered as an accomplished pilot who served his country and generously shared his love of aviation with numerous young people—in many cases personally teaching them how to fly and helping them develop successful aviation careers.Jerry introduced all three of his sons—and many neighborhood children—to flying in the family's 1946 Globe Swift and nurtured them as they developed skills and confidence to fly solo as teenagers. Jerry's mentorship benefited many lives. Many of those he mentored became military or commercial pilots. Others drew on his rigorous lessons in personal integrity, discipline, caution, and courage in other careers. By helping young people accomplish something that seemed impossible, Jerry helped them gain the confidence to follow their dreams. The journey from earth to sky was one Jerry was particularly well suited to lead. The son of Ralph Van Buren and Delana Ross Cobb and the brother of Molla Patricia Cobb, Jerry grew up on a farm his family had homesteaded near the small town of Hartford, Alabama. He worked hard building fences, taking care of animals, and harvesting crops with his parents. In school, he played piano, wrote creatively, and cultivated a lively, scientific mind. He earned a scholarship to the University of Alabama to study math and physics. During the first week of classes, he met Ann Hulsey, who later became his wife. They soon became partners in a photography business, the proceeds of which Jerry used to buy an airplane. He regularly flew it back to the family farm to visit his parents, a journey he repeated throughout his life. Jerry graduated from the University of Alabama in 1962. Jerry's love of aviation and all things technical led him naturally to a military career, and his expertise enabled him to serve with particular distinction. After working briefly at NASA in Huntsville, Alabama, Jerry completed pilot training at Craig Air Force Base and was assigned to the 12th and 8th Tactical Fighter Wings and 555 Tactical Fighter Squadron from 1963 to 1966. He completed deployments to Naha and Udorn, flying 135 combat missions in the F-4 Phantom, a jet fighter. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and six Air Medals for heroism and extraordinary achievement in aerial combat. On his return, he served as an Instructor Pilot for the 436 Tactical Fighter Squadron in Homestead, Florida, from 1966 until 1969. At the conclusion of his military career, Jerry joined the airlines. His career, which began with National Airlines and continued with Pan American World Airways and Delta Air Lines, spanned three decades and took him all over the world. He developed an appreciation for other cultures and ways of life and shared these expanded horizons with his family. Jerry was an airline Captain who logged more than 25,000 hours in the 727, 737, 747, 757, 767 and DC-10 aircraft. He was one of the initial instructors for cockpit resource management at Pan Am and provided training for a Space Shuttle Crew for NASA. He retired from Delta as the Chief Line Check Airman for the 737 in January 2000. After his retirement, Jerry devoted himself full-time to volunteer work and community service. He drew upon his love of aviation in his work on the Airport Authority for Falcon Field in Peachtree City, where he served as chairman for several years, overseeing airport expansion and safety improvements. In addition, he served for numerous years as the Director of the Great Georgia Airshow, which he helped grow from a small-scale operation to a major regional event. During this time, he and Ann frequently hosted impromptu parties at the family's hangar, which became a beehive of activity for the civil aviation community. These activities brought him great personal satisfaction and many new friends. Jerry struggled with heart disease for many years. His scientific background, self-discipline, and interest in technical aspects of his care enabled him to play an active role in his treatment, and he was able to extend his life beyond what many expected. On his last day, he was aware that the air show he helped direct for so many years was in progress. On short notice, its organizers arranged a touching tribute: In the final minutes of the airshow, family and friends gathered under clear blue skies to celebrate Jerry's life and spirit.

Broocke lived out his years on his 20 acre grove and airstrip in Winter Beach. Broocke was qualified in virtually every airline transport aircraft used by the airlines from 1946 to his retirement. In 1925, his grandmother paid the Depression Era fortune of $5.00 to a gypsy barnstormer who gave him his first airplane ride in a biplane. After dropping out of engineering school in 1939 and a short stint with the Army Corps of Engineers, storm clouds were gathering and Broocke went into the US Navy, earning his wings as a Naval Aviator and serving in the South Pacific. Flying the PBY-5A amphibious seaplane, Broocke was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Air Medals. On one occasion Broocke and his crew air evacuated an injured marine to the hospital on Bougainville which required a dangerous open sea landing in unknown surface conditions. The landing was successful despite failure of the landing flares and float lights. On November 3, 1973 at 41,000 feet over New Mexico, Broocke was in command of a DC-10 which experienced a catastrophic explosion of the #3 engine that hurled shrapnel into the fuselage. The cabin decompressed causing passengers and flight attendants to lose consciousness. One passenger was ejected through a popped cabin window and never found. Broocke and his crew skillfully executed a spiraling emergency descent landing at Kirkland Air Force Base in 19 minutes. The right engine dragged the ground during the landing causing a rooster tail of fire which miraculously did not ignite the fuel venting from holes in the wing. After the landing, with fire trucks blanketing the stricken aircraft with foam, Broocke climbed down into the blacked out galley in the belly , crawling on his hands and knees looking for a flight attendant who was mistakenly reported as missing. Despite advancing Alzheimer's disease he took care of his wife for ten years at home and even after she was admitted to a nursing home, he hand fed her last few meals. Broocke was well known in his community as a man of integrity, generosity, kindness, and consideration for others. Broocke's sole survivor is his son Bill who is the President of US Generator, a local Treasure Coast business. F/E P.C. Russell Capt.
