We both toiled, for a time, in the radar gardens of our Uncle Sam. Buck worked primarily in the air search radar realm while I stayed more focused in the Continuous Wave and Doppler Pulse Fire Control Radar world.
You could tell he was Air Force because he covered a lot of ground in life and made a blessedly speedy departure. An exit like his is a blessing beyond price. I am going to miss him like I miss the man who introduced us. Good men who got the greatest things out of life and who suddenly, one day, stepped into the clearing at the end of the path.
I had hoped to one day see son#3 join his blog roll. I don't think he will ever know what he missed.
Pass and farewell friend. Until we meet again.
