Earl Imes -- skydiver, jump pilot, foster parent, overall good guy -- passed away just about a month ago now. Years ago, he let me borrow his PC to jump a few times. He flew the jump plane when he wasn't jumping.
I knew him in the late '70's, and he was active at Mount Olive, North Carolina, and Big Daddy's, just outside Goldsboro, North Carolina.
The world -- not just the skydiving world, but the WHOLE WORLD -- is poorer for his passing.
I hadn't seen him in thirty years, and I had in mind to call him, or write him a letter when I found his obituary on line. Lesson learned -- now I'm actively looking for other old friends.
