The passing of Richard Quigley

Fellow Controllers

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Richard Quigley. Richard passed away peacefully a few days ago from Stage 4 Lung Cancer. He had been a valued member of our CZQM FIR for over 7 years and will be missed. He accumulated approximately 3,000 controller hours, and 2,000 pilot hours on the VATSIM network. Richard was always able to make us smile during stressful Cross the Pond events.

Please keep Quigley’s family in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time. It was a request of his that his flying family be notified.

Richard's family will be holding a memorial in November and will be making arrangements for people to attend via a video conference. We will be collecting funds in the next couple of weeks to donate in his honour or to send the family flowers.

More details to come.

Richard was always a friendly face to come across - I remember many good chats between him and I. So sad to hear this news - a wonderful man, indeed.
