Mooney, Cirrus & Diamond Aircraft Factory Authorized Service Centers
Due to the sudden passing of Russell Stallings on September 1, Southwest Texas Aviation has temporarily suspended operations until the company can reorganize.
Russell’s death occurred exactly one month after his daughter, Summer Stallings, was involved in a life threatening motorcycle accident in San Marcos, Texas. Despite wearing a helmet, Summer required total facial reconstruction and a metal plate in her forehead. Summer currently has an open wound on her leg which is healing slowly with the aid of a vacuum machine.
Despite insurance, Summer already faces very high medical bills from her accident. Unfortunately, Russell was uninsured and leaves behind massive medical bills associated with his Careflight, ICU stay, and emergency surgeries attempting to save his life.
A fund has been set up to help cover some of Summer and Russell’s medical bills and to help Summer with her future medical care as she continues to heal. Any amount, large or small that you can contribute, is very much appreciated.
Russell was passionate about his business and probably knew more about the Cirrus, Diamond, and Mooney lines of aircraft than any other single person walking the face of this Earth today. His loss, while very personal to our family, is a bigger loss to the General Aviation community.
PLEASE REFRAIN FROM OFFERING CONDOLENCES BY PHONE AND INSTEAD SEND THEM TO ESTATERUSSELL@GMAIL.COM. WE KNOW RUSSELL WOULD HAVE APPRECIATED YOU CALLING BUT WE NEED TO KEEP THE PHONE LINES OPEN FOR ORDER INQUIRIES ONLY.
Thank you and God Bless,
Ray Stallings (Russell’s Brother)
