I based my aircraft at Hyde Field for many years before 9-11 forced me out. I am not A&P rated but have always done most of the work for my annual inspections. Milt's vast experience, wisdom, and skill gave him the confidence to let me do it, and me the confidence that I wouldn't do anything stupid to my airplane. Over the years I came to regard him as a good friend. I haven't seen him in several years, so stopped by Hyde Field last week to say hi, when I was saddened to learn he was gone. The world is poorer for his loss. --Norman Johnson

Thank you. He left Hyde in 2012. He is at peace now.
