Rube Best passed along this sad bit of news...
Would appreciate you passing this memo on to the OBA members who may have known Mark Hunley, who recently passed away. For example our Field Tech Reps to the squadrons came under Mark and Maj. Bill Beckett/Col K.P. Rice, founders of the OV-10 project, who were inducted into OV-10 Hall of Fame in October, probably knew Mark.
Mark was born August 23, 1927 and deceased November 27, 2007. He was a graduate of Ohio State University and Capital University, both in Columbus, Ohio. He had a long tenure as OV-10 Logistics Manager with North American Aviation/Rockwell International, retiring in 1985 from NAA/RI. He is survived by his wife Nancy of 56 years.
Thank you Jim, I have the greatest respect for Mark and our past association on the OV-10 Program.
In addition to his wife Nancy, Mark is survived by his sons Eric (Jane) Hunley and Matthew Hunley of Dallas, TX as well as John and fiancee Melissa Straub of Berkley, MI, and Matthew of Dallas. He will be interred at Union Cemetery in Columbus, OH at a later date. Contributions to honor Mark may be made to the Bexley United Methodist Church, Bexley Education Association, or Ohio State University.
Our condolences and prayers go out to Mark's wife, family, and friends. You can read his obituary here.
