Default Robert Anglin

To all who know or have met Robert Anglin, RV8A and frequent poster on VAF, he passed away yesterday evening while working on his aircraft in his hangar at 8A7. I know Robert was well known in the Houston Texas area, and he had relocated here to NC in retirement a few years ago. He completed his RV8A about 2 years ago, and has been one of those guys that came out to the airport almost every day, rain or shine to fly or work on his RV. He was a man with driven passion for this great hobby and the friendships that go along with it...Robert will be missed by our 8A7 community,and those who knew him. Arrangements have not been disclosed at this time... Praying for his family.

Sad news. He was always willing to lend a hand, share a tool or his experience.

Default My sympathies

I am so saddened to read this. I never met him, but his name was easily recognized and I have read many of his posts here. We will miss his thoughts, his experiences and his encouragement to others.

May his family and friends have many wonderful memories of his life as they grieve his passing.

Bill, thanks for passing on the info. Very sad news indeed. I will miss his posts on VAF - I unfortunately didn't have the pleasure of meeting him in person to the best of my recollection. He seemed like a solid guy.
