Ohhhhh My condolances.

Gunny was always much revered and respected around this community.

We should aim to commemorate his life and membership at YSFHQ soon. :)

Semper Fi, Gunny!
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Rest in peace Gunny. I may not have known him, but i loved his planes, and i know he was a pillar of this community. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

So sad to learn of Gunny passing!

Mad many good conversations with him back in the days of teamspeak, he was such a good person!

Even as little ago as March this year we shared a private message.
He will leave a huge hole in this community that's for sure!

The official video of the "Marine's Rally" mass flight at RIAT 2021 is now available. I'd like to consider it something of a memorial for Gunny, or at least, the closest us on HQ will get to doing one all together.
