Default Judy Avery


Bob asked that I publish this for the Avery's many friends in the RV community. His wife Judy passed on Dec 17.

Obit at:

I'm guessing the order forms for every tool I bought for my RV-6 passed over Judy's desk at one time or another. The Avery's helped thousands of us get our planes in the sky. This one hurts.

With deepest condolences,

My condolences to the Avery family. It was always a pleasure to go to there place to get tools. You were treated like family even if it was the first time you had been there. She was a special lady that will be greatly missed.

Bob, you and Judy touched many lives, and our condolences indeed.
I remember one moment many years ago that I was frustrated with my project because I didn't have the right tool. So I picked up the phone, and guess who...

Judy and her family have done so much for the community over the years - I really enjoyed visiting with them and their team at Oshkosh, and still enjoy looking through their old catalogs from time to time, and using the excellent tools they made available to us. Godspeed, Judy!

When I was looking for a tool kit for my RV-8 build there was only one real choice, and that was Avery.

I remember talking to Judy and her patience dealing with an idiot Brit who had no idea the difference between a 2X and 3x gun!

My sincere condolences to her family.
