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!

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. :(;) How in the world could you mourne Johnny? He was an institution, my neighbor, and a total ASSHOLE!!:ph34r::ph34r:

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

We'll miss you Bro..Everywhere I saw you Bridge Day, Zhills, WFFC, Chester you lit the place up.

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

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

RIP Coolo Rodriguez. :(

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. :)
Stupidity if left untreated is self-correcting
If ya can't be good, look good, if that fails, make 'em laugh.

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 :)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) :)
Johnny Gates ""remember have fun & love each other cuz you're only here once"" B|
