E.B. Feutz ’41, Leader in Aviation, Dies

Missouri Military Academy graduate and longtime Mexico resident Emil B. (E.B.) Feutz, class of 1941, passed away at his home on September 1.

Feutz graduated from MMA in 1941 and went on to achieve his dream of becoming a test pilot. He tested aircraft for Cessna and McDonnell Aircraft, eventually founding his own company, Testair, in St. Louis.

He is survived by his wife, Dorothy Estep Feutz, four children, Sheryl Feutz-Harter of Plattsburg, Mo., Wally Feutz (Cindy) of Mexico, Connie Feutz (Paul) of Bellingham, WA, and Eric Feutz (Grace) of Fayette, Mo., eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Feutz left his mark on MMA with the creation of the Feutz Aviation Scholarship, awarded to the deserving MMA cadet who participates in the aviation program. The family is requesting memorial contributions to the E.B. Feutz Scholarship, care of Missouri Military Academy, or the local hospice of their choice.
