I flew with him as a young nav and ran into him again as a 38 stud at DLF. I saw him in the hall not 15 minutes before we stepped to fly on Monday and we talked about hopefully flying 4-ship together for old times sake. One of the most gregarious, over the top, talk your ear off for hours larger than life guys I've ever known. F*ck,  this one hurts.  I'll miss you brother. :beer:

I knew him in field training and ran into him again during pilot training. What a great dude. Made field training a riot, and great support for a dude trying to figure out the transition from navy 34s to the 38. Very sad day in the aviation industry. He will truly be missed.

Him him.

Dang - new T-38 seat and a supposed mayday call.  This is one SIB report I'm eager to read...

SIIC/Stuck was one of the best dudes you'd ever hope to know.  The Buff community is taking this loss hard.  Him him :beer:
