Capt Ted Ortez RIP

I regret to inform those that knew and worked with Capt Edward Ortez that he passed away in HKG on 29th Sept. Ted spent his last flying years at Hunting Cargo Airlines/Air Contractors on the B727 before losing his medical in the late 1990s, previously he worked with Emirates. His latter years were spent as a Sim trainer on Airbus types and passed away while in the employment of Dragonair in HKG. May he Rest in Peace.

Captain Ted Ortez.

It is with deep regret that I learn of Ted's passing. I had the honour and privilege of working with Ted for many years. Aviation has lost a true professional and I a dear friend.

My thoughts are with Shirley, Emma and Justin at this sad time.

With sincere respect,

Tom Ferguson.

I met Ted when he first joined Ansett back in the late 70's, or perhaps the early 80's, we flew together only a few times on the F27 in Adelaide, but I remember he was an instantly likeable guy and a good operator.

I lost track of him when he went to Bne and I went to Mel and we were on different a/c types, but like all of us, Capts or F/Os, we tend to think of the guys we had a rapport with as the years pass.

Ted was one of those guys.

I might also add, that in view of the fact that the moderators of prune these days have elected to dispense with the death of a pilot, many of us knew well, to the rather non descript ,"Where are they now" thread, indicates to me a lack of couth on behalf of all the D & G Mods!

Consequently, this will be my last post on Prune.

Captain Ted Ortez.

I would dearly like to have a contact with Ted's family.

If this is not possible for confidential reasons, then would it be possible to pass my details to Shirley, Ted's wife.

Appreciate your help;

Kind regards,

Tom Ferguson.

Ted Ortez

Just read through the comments posted about my husband's death. Another pilot told me he had seen the messages on the site and suggested I have a look. Thanks to all who have written such lovely coments. He in fact died on September 30th, on his 57th birthday. We all miss him dreadfully, from his wife Shirley and three children, Jason Emma and Dana.
