John Wukits

With deep regret I have to acknowledge the passing of yet another comrade in arms.  It came to our attention that John Wukits passed away on April 7, 2011.  John was a stationed at RAF Bentwaters from 1963 to 1967 a member of  ā€œCā€ Flight security.  John was always happy and had an infectious smile.  As I may quote from his obituary, "The world will be a lesser place without him, a better place because of him, and heaven just got a whole lot funnier. He will be missed dearly."

Some of my fondest memories of C Flt were with John, Solar, and Wally Carter, now all gone to soon. John had that infectious grin that would keep a room lit up all the time...RIP , John

Thanks guys. John was surely the "Love of my Life." He was the most giving person I have ever known. I loved him dearly and miss him every single day.

Took us quite some time to locate John. When we did we all met in South Carolina and had some time with John. He was a character, I know he was my roomie. Glad we spen the time with him that we did. I think there was 8 from all parts of the country. We all worked the same job and had the same schedule. Will be missed. Thanks for the memories.

John snd I were very close friends back in Millvale. John was 21 and I was 18. We had great times together and I have never forgotten about him. After I left Pennsylvania and moved to Massachusetts our connection was lost. He will always live in my heart as the first man I loved.
