  1. He kindly sent me this after I wrote him a few years back. I'd mailed him this page from the Dec. 1960 National Geographic and he signed it for me. Was a childhood idol and his jump got me dreaming of the days when I'd be jumping, too. RIP.
  2. Can't forget the Cunning Stunts!
  3. Oh, no......not Jeff. What a guy. Made nice jumps with him at Coolidge. Bummer. Sigh....
  4. Halloween Boogie, 1977.... seldom if ever matched. Tom Piras, Zing, Ernie Butler, etc. in rare form.
  5. Another of my early idols in the sport. Sigh.... R.I.P.
  6. Russ was a much loved jumper from El Paso who jumped at all the Ghoulidge Boogies in the 80's and early 90's passed away Sept. 20, 2020. He'd had numerous health issues and as many close calls as the proverbial 9-lives cat, but finally his time here expired. Gone, but never forgotten. R.I.P. old friend.
  7. Here's an old letter I got from M. Anderson Jenkins long time ago. Also attached to letter is article on his drowning from Mike Truffer's Skydiving magazine.
  8. My first Dactyl, the black one. Came from Handbury in a shoebox. Note no slider, as I'd cut it off. About 100+ jumps on it back in the 70's, then another 200 on my white one.
  9. My single keel Paradactyl. Opened "yesterday" with a snap! Sweet ride. Had a black one (sold to a friend) and a white one. Pic below of both of us under canopy.
  10. World Meet Z-Hills 1981..... the boogie between competition jumps I got grounded for a low pull (gee seemed normal to me) and Dave noticed that scene. Grinning and on the sly, he pulled off his boogie wristband and gave it to me. "Keep jumping, I'll get another." One of a kind, ol' Dave. Miss him. R.I.P to a good man. In pic, he's on far right in younger days.
  11. As kind as human being as I've known. RIP dear friend.
  12. Another shot of Joe, down in the scrum around Wes Shiles.
  13. Mig and Cindy! They around somewhere? Lost track after they left El Paso and went to Florida.
