    This Communication that was sent to all AHOF Trustees and Volunteers.

    It is with great sadness that I want to inform our AHOF family of the passing of Stewart Golding. He died on Sunday, February 20th he was 97. In addition to being a longtime volunteer here at AHOF Stu was also a docent and I can recall his doing an incredible job!

    He was also a distinguished veteran of World War II, serving in the Army Air Corps in the European Theater of Operations. He flew over 50 missions and participated in 6 campaigns including the Ardennes Offensive (Battle of the Bulge) and Normandy (Operation Overlord). He was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal, Distinguished Unit Badge, French and Belgian Fourragère, and the Presidential Unit Citation. He concluded his military service with 10 years in the Reserves.

    Anyone that had the honor of knowing Stu knew how proud he was of his service and his phenomenal recollections of WWII battles. A wonderful man. I am deeply saddened at his passing.
