I am saddened to learn of Len's passing. He was my flight instructor in HT-8 at Ellyson Field in 1966, and a tough one at that. Months later, we served together in Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron THREE in Vietnam. Len was the competent professional who did everything well. Our paths crossed through the years and I would see him from time to time in D. C. when we were both on the Navy staff. My heartfelt condolences to the family. May God rest his soul.

I first had the privilege of meeting Len because he was one of my dad's best friends. They enjoyed playing rounds of Golf together more for the good fellowship then for a winning score. I enjoyed how he and Ruth Ann loved to visit their children and traveled the world together.
I felt it was a privilege and honor to know Captain Len Woltersdorf.
Heaven is filling up with some amazing people.
