Arthur C. Fiedler Jr. - 325th FG "Checkertail Clan" - 8 Victory Ace - Mayfair35

Sad to inform everyone of the passing of this absolutely amazing gentleman.

From his Son Skip Fielder on Facebook:

Skips original post:


"In Memorandum..........
Shortly after noon on the 11 May 2016, my Father, Art Fiedler took his last breath. His Heart kept on beating, in vain, for the rest of his body to provide their end on the life cycle. A final statement for this WWII Checkertail Warrior. No matter how much time you have to prepare for this moment, when it comes it's way ; way ; too much."

Followed today with:


"Art Fiedler Died 11 May 2016 after a brief stay at St. Johns Hospital in Oxnard, CA. In the end, his mind was sound but his body was unwilling to carry on. After a event filled life of 92 years, 9 months and 11 days. May he rest peace"

Yes, I recall him posting here a few times. He gave interesting insights in the process when he talked about his mission & how it was recreated for the 'Dogfights' TV documentary.
