Received this email this afternoon:
I hope you all will join me in saying a prayer for our skydive brother Troy Milowaters. On Tuesday Troy died from injuries sustained after a low turn at the Ranch.
Troy was one of the most easy going guys I knew, he was a master mechanic, freeflyer and traveler. He always had a warm inviting smile, like a beacon it was from of his spirit. It was this honest smile and easy going way which made Troy a truly beautiful person. When I think of Troy I will smile easily and share the joy he always had.
A memorial service will be held for Troy this Saturday, September 14. It will take place at the Ranch at sunset (7pm). I am sorry there are no further details to share at this time, any further info will be posted at http://www.ranchskydive.com/forum_toc.htm
Please express your love and care to those close to him.
And if you can join friends at Puck Fair this evening as we remember and raise a glass to Troy.
Fly Free Troy
Let's be careful out there...

Re: [SkyDekker] Low turn fatality at the ranch
[In reply to]
the memorial was so moving - a three-otter fly-by, touching words by Billy Richards and by Troy's parents who were unbelievably composed and strong. the sight of all the skydivers out on the landing area supporting each other was incredible - a true testament to the ties that join all skydivers as family.
to Troy: freefall forever, baby comfort and hope to all who knew and loved him
