Stuart Goddard - Crewing
Stuart passed away peacefully on 26th December 2018. My sincere condolences go out to his family, friends and former colleagues at this difficult time.

Stuart joined Caledonian Airways in 1969 in the crewing department, later leaving to join BUA in February 1970 only to return to the fold again in 1971 when BCal was formed.  He is remembered well by friend and colleague Tony (Fella) Roberts.

Service details

The family held a private service for Stuart, and his ashes were laid to rest alongside his Father, Grandfather, Aunts and Uncles in Gloucestershire.

From Valerie Armstrong:  Sorry to hear this sad news

From Terry Lyons
When I worked at BCAL with Stuart he was aircraft Crewing along with Ray Tingley, Mark Parsons and others. What a happy family B-CAL was. I skied with Stuart often in BCAL ski team race days and Stuart's Jensen Intercepter could be heard miles away. Such a great guy and such a loss.  Rest easy matey. Condolences to all his family.

From Caron Phillips: RIP My sincere condolences to the family

From David R Holder: Stuart was a great guy, knew him well . RIP Stuart

From Sally Simmonds: Very sorry to hear. Sad news indeed.

From Beryl Mason:  How very sad, he was such a lovely guy. RIP Stuart.

From Loz Allan
I’ll always remember Stuart as a helpful, considerate person to work with. I occasionally bumped into him, long after we both left BCAL, when he was walking his very well-trained (and obviously devoted) golden retriever. Always with a ready, natural smile, and the complete gentleman; God bless you Stuart and my sincere condolences to all the family.

From Erika Browning
Very shocked to learn of the death of Stuart. I am remembering many laughs and good times when liaising with Stuart and his colleagues in rostering. Very sad news indeed.

From Sarah and Norman Hosford
Very sad news. I remember him well as one of the good guys. Always approachable and helpful. Norman remembers him, from the second row, for both BCal and Reigate rugby teams.  Condolences to his family

From David Heal
I was so sorry to read of the passing of Stuart. I worked with him in Aircrew Rostering for many years and always found him cheerful at all times and a wonderful character.

From Peter Goddard
My condolences to the family of Stuart; although we shared the same surname we were not related, but I recall a couple of fabulous B-Cal Ski Club trips that he organised. He was the life of the club: I personally could not keep up with him either on the slopes or in the bar, but they were genuinely good days… Ski Heil, and I wonder if anyone else remembers “DEAD FLY!”  A thoroughly likeable bloke: a good way to be remembered.
