Sorry to hear of your dad's passing. From the way you spoke of your dad, I am sure you were very close and you will miss him. Prayers coming your way.

My condolences. I met soon after joining his RC flying club and was impressed with how easy it was to enjoy his company. I did not see him very often (our flying dates often did not match), but I often thought of how he was so well liked by many others and that he kept flying his whole life; he was an inspiration. Peace be with his family and friends. Ken Roszel
