Bill Gifford Passed, September 1, 2014
William Gifford, fellow veteran of the 74th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, Westover AFB, Massachusetts, passed away today at Baystate Medical following heart surgeries. He'd not done well this last week, losing kidney function and he "signed the final Form 40" this morning.
Giff was a flight instructor on the C-123. What a character and what a squadron legend!
Steve Caraker will send details when available. God bless and keep Bill and his family.
