Default Godspeed!

I also enjoyed Anthony's posts. He looks like he was a very kind man, and I always feel more sad when even a little kindness leaves our world, it's a true loss for even those of us who did not know him personally. God bless his family and friends.

Good luck on your last flight, Anthony! I'll give you a salute, next time I'm up in the sky.

Anthony contacted me some months ago if he could visit us and have a look at our RV-4 project. Unfortunately it should never happen...

Sincere condolences to family and friends.

Default Just the beginning...

Tony and I had chatted many times concerning THE coolest RV His easy going persona and technical savvy were rare indeed. I never had a chance to chat with him about eternity though, my only regret.


Heaven is real, for those who believe...

Default Anthony

Tony was a great help to me in dealing with my health issue, as well. Mine is curable with surgery, and that's happening. But the courage he had in facing his disease was inspirational.

If anyone wants to fly a "missing man" for Tony, take some pictures and post them.

Tony was showing courage by simply doing what we are doing: building an airplane without knowing you'll live long enough to complete it. I promise to put an "island monkey" logo sticker on mine when it's done.

I'll miss our conversations. Rest well, my friend.
