"Lt Col Morris “Moose” Fontenot, of Longmeadow MA and the 104FW at Barnes ANG Base, Westfield MA was tragically killed in an F-15C crash in Deerfield VA on 27 Aug 2014. Moose was true patriot, serving over 18 years in the United States Air Force as an F-15C Weapons Officer and Commander. Moose dedicated himself to helping his fellow airmen succeed in life and in their careers, giving everything and anything he could. This Memorial Fund and Race have been established to preserve Moose’s spirit, raise funds to help his family in this difficult time and to gather around the Fontenot family to show our love and support. Our goal is to raise money for education, housing and other expenses for Moose’s wife, Kara, and daughters, Natalie and Nicole."
