Passing of VP-4 Vet LCDR Theodore A. Santuae USN (Ret) VP-4 1954 – 1957

Fallen ShipmateThis sad news was received by Pete Bernardin, VP-4 55-58, who passed it to Bob Davis, VP-4 62-63, of the P2V Officers group. Bob forwarded it to me so I could send it to others who may have known Ted Santuae. A quick research found that Ted became a pilot through the NAVCAD program and he served in VP-4 as an Ensign and LTJG.
Dear Friends’

Yesterday, I got a call from Ted’s daughter Ann Marie, advising me that Ted passed away on Monday. Not entirely unexpected; he has been dealing with a number of serious health issues these past few years. Nonetheless, a very sad piece of news….he was 88.
