I was very fortunate to fly my T-41 Checkride and my T-37 Checkride with this fine man that I was able to keep in touch with until 2019. We were able to get to know each other through the years with the use of the internet. He loved to hunt, and I was able to set up a duck hunt for him, with my Father who had a duck blind in the Mississippi Delta-- in Glen Allan , Mississippi, the year I cannot recall. We traded emails for a number of years, the last in early 2019. I recently found out he had passed away. I ask God to bless his family, and wish all the best to all the members of "Goldie"s family. I will remember him as long as I am on this earth....

Mary, "Fingers" and family--
When "legends" go West, they leave a hole in our hearts. The good news is that hole is soon replaced by the glorious memories of why they were "legends."
May God bless you all in your time of loss. We'll all raise a glass to "Goldie." He would accept nothing less.
