In his 70’s he became a certified flight instructor and in his 80’s he was giving his children ulcers by still doing loops and rolls in his high performance “experimental” RV 8 airplane. He frightened excited many people by taking them for rides in the RV 8 and most said the ride was the highlight of their lives. He was still flying just weeks before his passing.

flying, camping, riding horses in the Bob Marshall wilderness, fishing much, much more.
