I take it this is Bobs son that died. I knew Bob the father in the 80s. He died 2005.
Great guy.
I believe Bob started it all as we know how planes are built today.

He was a GREAT guy. He sure had some winning designs back in the day. I absolutely abused my Stephen's ACRO for seasons!


You were a great friend to him Donnie!

So sorry to hear of this loss.

A couple years back I had been speaking to Robert about a canopy for my older 32.5% Godfrey Extra 330. He was bouncing ideas to me on how to reproduce it. We had a few back and forth emails and they just stopped. Someone said back then he was having some health issues, so I never bothered him again about it. But he could not have been nicer or more open and willing to help.

Godspeed Robert.
