Capt. Tom Patterson (1923-2000)
Tom started flying with ONA in 1951 and flew 
until the shut-down in 1963.  He returned 
to duty in 1965 after the ONA re-organization 
and commanded the cockpit until 1978, the sad 
end of operations.

In 1978 Tom began flying for McDonnell Douglas, 
Long Beach, CA.  He trained Mexican, Indonesian 
and Nigerian pilots on the DC-10.  When the age 
60 rule hit he began simulator training and 
taught for MD until 1992.  And from 1992 until 
2000 he taught Ground School for a couple of 
Arizona flight schools.

Sadly in 2000, Tom was impacted by congestive 
heart failure and in Nov. that year he heeded 
his last command, to Fly West.  

Tom married Lore Ullrich in 1965.  Lore was an 
ONA “stew” from 1960-1963 and they had a long 
and happy marriage. Lore survives Tom and 
resides in Arizona. He is also survived by 
his 5 children, 6 grand-kids and 6 great 
grand-kids. 

Tom was a gadget guy and loved to build his 
own computers, ride his Gold Wing motorcycle 
and always loved to get the latest and 
greatest electronic goodies.  He set a great 
example by the way he lived and the values 
he embraced.  

He is remembered fondly and often.  

Bill & Lore Patterson,
(Tom´s son and Tom´s wife)
Lore lives in Arizona and Bill
lives in California.
