Another loss for the hobby in DFW
Jim Bateman aka Soup Can passed away this week at the age of 55. He had been in the hobby close to 20 years. Spent a great deal of time at Mike's Hobby Shop in Carollton, Tx before it closed. Also spent a lot of time at Aerohobbies in Lewisville, Tx.

He leaves behind a wife and unborn child due in October. He will be missed by many. A great loss to the DFW heli community.

Thoughts and prayers to his family. I remember him coming to our funfly here in Mt.Pleasant, and dropping paratroopers from his helis skids, 3 or 4 at a time.

Did he have enough insurance or do you Heli friends want to take up a collection? I am 55, and I will put some money up for a fellow Heli Man!

Not sure but would think he would have had life insurance. Job 1 when you have a kiddo in the oven.
