05/12/98
I have been informed of the passing of Jim Pirie.  Jim recently met 
with several of his old squadronmates from VA-93 in Pensacola, FL.  
Jim met up with RAdm Jim Seely, "Jude" Lahr, R.T. Davis, Pete Dodge, 
Jack Waeltz, Mac Alsop and Tom Wondergem.  They had a great get 
together, a little golf, a seminar and lots of memories shared.  The 
event broke up around 11:00 Saturday morning (9 May).  Jim Pirie drove 
Lahr and Dodge to the New Orleans Airport and dropped them off around 
4:00 PM.  That night at around 10:00 PM, Jim died in his sleep from a 
heart attack.

Jim is survived by his wife Barbara.  (Children & others unknown). 
Jim was a LCdr flying his 225th mission in an A4E when shot down 
6-22-67.  He was released 2-18-73.  No further information is known.

God speed in your flight West, Jim.
