GONE WEST Sad

Brig. Gen. David Lee "Tex" Hill


Col Ollie Crawford reports, "It is with a heavy heart that I must report that one of our living legends has "Gone West". Thursday at 5 p.m., Flying Tiger Ace and Air Combat Airman Hall of Fame honoree David Lee "Tex" Hill died. Tex was very close to the CAF and had not missed one of the annual airshows for the past 20 years--- until this year.


"His funeral will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Alamo Heights United Methodist Church in San Antonio. His last flight will be at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery at 2:30 p.m. Aircraft flying over the burial site in his honor over the cemetery will include four Apache helicopters from Fort Knox followed by four A-10s from Moody Air Force Base, followed by four P-51s and then a lone P-40.

Tex was a close personal friend and hunting companion. He will be missed by all who knew him."


Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

A sad day indeed as another legend leaves us into the great plains.

May he rest in peace and his family and friends find comfort that he touched their lifes.

Amen
