I just heard an airplane fly down the river and I thought if Buddy and Googled his name and I see this . Buddy took me on a heck ride and I was hooked , I then went on to get my own ultralite and live my flying dream and Buddy played a huge role in that mentoring me in Buddy fashion when I would do a bad landing basically in his front yard. I want to offer my condolences to one of the best Pilots that ever lived . Fly high Buddy!

Buddy became a staple up here at Shreveport PA. He was at the very first MDSF Club 020 event that I organized and eventually became an icon at all these gatherings. He played a big part in the annual event's success. Always had great stories to share. Very personable and would stop-by at my place whenever able.

So long Buddy! What a great life you had here on earth. You will be greatly missed. I will always appreciate all your flying contributions to Club 4 and all the people you had an opportunity to share your skills with. So many looked up to you for your knowledge and you kept many of us safe. Have a good flight Buddy! God bless your soul. Rest in Peace.
