I am out of town so I wasn't at zhills this weekend and was checking dz.com before heading to bed. Thanks for posting the notice, Scarlett.

Johnny my bro, the dz won't be the same without ya.
He was the most upbeat, positive vibe guy there.
And for many people at zhills, including alysse and me, he was one of the first people to invite us to skydive together as soon as we got our A license signed off. Muffs and all!

You are loved, where ever you are Johnny!

Marc

Oddly, my last glimps of Johnny was of his ASS as he was walking off the back deck to the loading area on his final jump. FrownWink How in the world could you mourne Johnny? He was an institution, my neighbor, and a total ASSHOLE!!SlySly

69 years old, terribly cool, died after the second point of a nice 8-way. His previous jump was in slot on a 21-way... Johnny did not suck. He was a great neighbor. He was a MUFF BROTHER!!.

"Important safety briefing!. Rule number one: DON'T FUCKING DIE. Rule number two: DON'T SLAM THE FUCKING DOOR!"

It did not suck living next to Johnny.

RIP,
Chuck, Muff 2857

Well, the World Freefall Convention is just not going to be the same without him. Johnny was a load organizer there for many years and we will miss him. He was one of the really cool guys in skydiving.

My favorite Johhny saying on the way up was "Let's say a prayer.....please God don't let me fuck this up!"Laugh Laugh

Everywhere i went, there he was. I never saw the same guy at so many places. Always smiling and spreading good cheer. He indirectly taught me that you're never too old to boogie. See ya soon at that huge boogie in the sky Johnny.

It was awesome knowing you MUFF MUFF Johnny Gates. I so enjoyed the jump that you, john, rob, blaine, and myself were on at BD this year.

You will be forever missed, always remembered, Never forgotten

Take a puff for me when you meet St Peter and ask him where the nearest Cloud or Star to BASE off of is.

RIP Coolo Rodriguez. Frown

Anytime I saw him and asked him how he was doing he'd say, "Just having fun, loving life."

I know if you truly love this sport the last thing you want to do is die doing it to avoid hurting it but if anybody deserved the right to go out "big" this way it was him.

Blus skies forever asshole. Smile

I think the sense of humour shown on this thread shows his character very well for those of us who didnt know the fella.

I cant even express how much we will miss brother Johnny. His contributions to this sport were incredible. His friendship speaks for itself.
It is comforting knowing that he died LIVING life at its best Smile
This is one (of many) of Johnny's sayings that has always been near and dear to my heart (and Johnny did live life as he spoke it....with an abundance of fun and love) Angelic
Johnny Gates ""remember have fun & love each other cuz you're only here once"" Cool

<<GREAT BIG YAHOO MUFF MUFF SMOOCHES>>
