KENNETH W. HEALY (1916 - 2016)
(CNAC November 1947 - very late in 1949)
(Captain - probably in late 1947)

I am sorry to bring you the news that Captain Ken Healy passed away on June 23rd after celebrating his 100th birthday on June 9th.

This picture was taken many years ago when he was Vice-President of World Airways.
I have attached an obituary (see below) I put together for Ken and mentioned his days with CNAC.
He really enjoyed the CNAC reunion and was still talking about those good old days in China.
