Got the news from his wife on Sunday evening that he had passed on early Sunday morning.

I have known him 25 yrs or so, we had nothing but fun everytime we went out to fly. John was a very quiet shy type of guy, very good flyer and just not to long ago I was able to help him fly helicopters. He was always a plane guy but he owned several helis as well but never could fly them because he never understood how to set one up, I finally talked him into letting me set one up my way and he could try it, sure enough he did learn to hover and do forward flight in small circles. John was a good builder, he could put a plane back together after a crash better than it ever was, thanks to ca glue and baking soda.

John was a member on RR and had just joined not to long ago under (pushrod1950)

RIP John and one day we will fly together again!!!

It was a hard day today

I went to the viewing today, told his wife about a great bunch of guys here on RR. I also sent Mark a pm to let him know pushrod1950 had passed on.

John had a battle with cancer for about 3 yrs, he was 65 yrs old.

Thanks guys for all the kind words and support.
