Subject: Requests Help With Fred William's Guest Book
The obit from RNPA re: Fred Williams’ death last month included a link to a “Guest Book” with which most members were not able to connect. Myron Bredahl managed to get through to the “Guest Book” and leave a sentiment, but he was the only one. Myron may have a better touch than the rest of us. I had no luck.
When the link to the Guest Book works, friends of the pilot “flown west” leave messages that the family will treasure over the years. But if the link does not work the first time, many of us forget to try again later.
Chuck Carlson, one of Fred’s many good friends, has agreed to help Fred’s wife “Jean” on Fred's obit for “Contrails.” The Guest Book link is not reliable and will be discontinued soon. Chuck asks that Fred’s friends send their memories and sentiments of Fred to his (Chuck’s) email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Chuck will assemble the entries for Jean to add to an album, and some may be used in the obit. Jean would appreciate any classic stories you might have about Fred, the funnier the better.
Fred Williams was one of my 707 S/O instructors in the summer of 1968. I must have scared him away, for Fred left the “flatlands” soon after and moved to the “hill country.” I only saw Fred a couple of times after that, but I never forgot him. Fred was personable, professional, put his students at ease, and he was one of the better instructors that I had at Northwest.
Please Send sentiments and stories to Chuck Carlson at: email@example.com
