Louie Schroeder passed away this morning.
For all you old time Detroit area jumpers Louie the Hook Schroeder lost his battle with life today about 9:45 this morning. He was back in Michigan to his place around Port Huron.He also lived in Brownsville Texas. He was the Head man of Thunderbolt Sky Diving team. He was also a CFII and taught many jump pilots to fly. He will be missed. I will post any new details as they come along. There will be a memorial service then ashes dropping at a later date. RIP Louie
We dropped Louies ashes on Saturday at Iosco County at Tommy Oriellys Tawas Boogie at $:45 PM . I was wearing an Ash Pouch and was launched by Cliff Alficne and Brandon Myksas an AFF student.Christopher Myks shot the video leaving from the trail plane. We were joined by Pat Solar opposite me then Mike Nestor and Larry Franklin . AT 5500 I pulled the velcro open for no more louie. The family on the ground was very thankful. There was a coordinated "Him" between both planes at 9000 feet as this was a small plane Cessna Boogie. RIP LOUIE
