”I began my first job in aviation, in the summer of 1978 (16yrs old), at  I pushed brooms, I pumped fuel, I flew little airplanes at his facility.
He became a friend and mentor throughout my life. He even fired me a couple of times. Telling me later; that that was the best thing for me. (“Ah okay”)
During the last few years, operating our small airplane business, and my side projects with private jets, we were more involved at the office. One of the last fond memories I’ll hold onto, was the enjoyment he shared, in having me fly him in his personal airplane for business & pleasure. It felt like a real closure of the career circle to me, coming from that know nothing teenager with such aspirations of future flying, to 43 years later, crewing the Cessna Citation for the person who gave me my first break. Thank you Mr C. Cheers & Tailwinds, RIP”..
