Hey Ed, thanks for posting this. Sad to see. He was my first CC when I was a skinny, fuzzy-haired cadet.

Yep, he was a terrific squadron commander and friend.  I owe much of my success as a cadet and squadron commander to his leadership, mentorship and example.  I was fortunate to see him and Sue in late 2017.
