Bill Jolly -- D-26 Can't Post

We've lost another pioneer, Bill Jolly, D-26.
He was a Navy veteran and a long-time employee of Pioneer Parachute Co.
With Jacques Istel, Nate Pond and Lew Sanborn, he was on the first two international skydiving records in the US -- in 1961, for both day and night four-way team accuracy.
In this picture, Bill at right with Lee Guilfoyle (D-50) and Istel.

Bill was my instructor on my second jump in 1962. It was an honor to have known him.
