Obituary.........................
SAMUEL OWEN GAMBLE
Sam Gamble, age 77, quietly passed away surrounded by loved ones on March 17, 2017.  His long struggle with diseases of the heart, lung and kidneys were over.  He was born in Ozark, AL to Lola and Horace Gamble on March 11, 1940.  After graduating high school in Lanette AL; Sam attended GA Tech thus graduating with a degree in Industrial Management.  He served a tour of duty with the U.S. Air Force becoming a military pilot flying F102s in Viet Nam.  After his tour, Sam became an Air Force instructor and was also in the Air National Guard.  With a dedicated love for aviation; he went on to have a career as a Captain with Delta Airlines from 1970 until retirement in March 2000.  He was based in Houston, Chicago and Cincinnati; finishing his career flying the B767/757.  Following retirement to Gainesville Florida, Sam studied French, philosophy and photography. His photography won awards in the Gainesville newspapers.  Sam’s thirsts for knowledge lead him to become a sommelier where he taught wine classes in the Gainesville area.  Ever the adventurer, Sam also loved anything outdoors.  He was an avid skier and loved hiking and camping in the Rockies.  He had an incredible zest for life.  There wasn’t a party he wouldn’t attend or host, fine wine he wouldn’t drink, a friend he wouldn’t help, book he wouldn’t read, a gourmet meal he wouldn’t relish.  Sam is missed by all who knew him.

Survivors include his wife of 36 years Barbara Marsh Gamble, son Russell Gamble and his wife Rachael and their two children Simon and Rebekah, his daughter Claire Elizabeth Gamble, and his brother, Gene.

Obituary..................... David Gregory Tauchen  (1952 - 2016)
With heavy hearts we share the news that our beloved David Gregory Tauchen, 64, lost his battle with Lyme Disease and Behavioral Variant Frontal Temporal Degeneration (BvFTD) on Thursday, December 15th, 2016. He passed peacefully at home with his family by his side in Reno, NV.
Dave was born in Madison, WI on July 4, 1952 to Theodore "Ted" and Ethel Rita Kelly Tauchen. He spent his early years convinced that all the fireworks were a celebration for him.
 
David grew up in the Catholic church attending Blessed Sacrament Elementary School and Edgewood High School, graduating in 1970. David was an altar boy who later confessed he had been "lip syncing" the Latin parts.
 
David's first job was a paper boy riding his bike all over town. After that he became a lifeguard at Vilas park, then gave cave tours at Lost River Caves in Blue Mounds, WI, and followed that with working at Eagle grocery store working his way up from stocking shelves to a meat cutter. David enjoyed being in the Boy Scouts, fishing, and hunting.
 
David attended University of Wisconsin for three years studying science. Then he moved to Salt Lake City, UT where he fell in love with the west and all the outdoor activities that came with it. In Salt Lake City, he worked for Harmon's grocery store as a meat cutter where he met a co-worker who got him into flying. He became a flight instructed during the day and a meat cutter by night. He eventually started flying oil executives in Navajos around the west mainly to WY. David was hired by Skywest Airlines in March 1982, flying Navajos then Metroliners based out of St. George, UT. David was excited to get hired with Republic Airlines on April 29, 1985, where he flew a Boeing 727 as a 2nd Officer (engineer), based in Minneapolis, MN. In 1986, he flew a Boeing 727 as a 1st Officer (co-pilot). In 1987, he flew the McDonald Douglas MD-80 as a 1st Officer (co-pilot). From 1988-1991 he flew the McDonald Douglas DC-9 as a 1st Officer (co-pilot). From 1991-2003 he flew the Boeing 747-200 cargo as a 1st Officer (co-pilot) flying to Narita, Japan and beyond, which is what he enjoyed the most. He was first based in Anchorage, AK living in Eagle River, AK for the first two years, then moved to Reno, NV. In July 1993 while living in NV, he commuted to Los Angeles, CA, Seattle, WA, and Minneapolis, MN. In 2003, he flew the Airbus A-320 as Captain. Medically retiring March 1, 2010.
 
David was larger than life and truly was one of a kind. He never met a boundary he could not cross with his incredible sense of adventure and joyful attack on life.
 
After a brief marriage to Ann Miller, he met Lisa Buckingham and eventually they married April 22, 1989, in Paradise Valley, NV. They had three children, Riley, Garek, and Heather. David was a terrific father and always tried to bid his flying trips around his children's life events. He was with his family every minute he was not in the cockpit flying. They had many great family adventures such as skiing, hiking, hunting, and taking yearly fishing trips to Alaska. David had a great love and respect for the outdoors and he shared that passion and energy with his family. Together David and Lisa built a log home on 67 acres out of Reno, NV to provide their children with life long childhood memories.
 
David loved listening to music, especially the Beatles. He was a history buff and was exceptionally knowledgeable about the Civil War and WWII. David had many favorite sayings such as, "it was the deal of the century," "gutsy move," or "its best in the west." David had a great sense of humor and was always up for a new adventure. He has shed the limitations from Lyme and BvFTD, so he can begin another adventure.
 
Through the ravages of a terrible disease, David received the absolute best care available. Lisa and children live by the Golden Rule and provided loving, nurturing care. Lisa dedicated herself to taking care of David's comfort down to the smallest detail. It is a testament to the family that David was in the home he loved until his last breathe.
 
He is survived by his mother Ethel Tauchen, brother George (Helen) Tauchen, nephew Robert Tauchen, sister Cindy (Stephen) Bray, niece MacKenzie Bray and nephew Zachary Bray, wife Lisa Tauchen, sons' Riley (Markee) Tauchen, Garek Tauchen, and daughter Heather Tauchen. Grandchildren Vanna and Dominic Tauchen. His dear cousin Ron Tauchen, Linda Tauchen and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
 
He is preceded in death by his father Ted Tauchen, brother Bob Tauchen, niece Amelia Marguet, and nephew Alex Bray.
 
Celebration of LIFE was Tuesday, December 27, 2016, at 11 a.m. at West 2nd Events Center 600 W 2nd Street Reno, NV to carry on his WI pride please join us immediately after for a beer and brat party.
 
In lieu of flowers, please donate to http://tinyurl.com/IMOTauchen to help fund research to find a cause and cure for this terrible disease of Behavioral Variant Frontal Temporal Degeneration (BvFTD).

I once asked you if you knew a retired Delta pilot by the name of Ray Moody.  Ray passed away this week, and Barbara and I went to his funeral service today in Vidalia, GA.  Attached is the program from the service.  Ray flew L1011’s for Delta (in his later years, I assume), but I was more struck by the 188 missions he flew in Southeast Asia during three tours of duty there. Guys like Ray and you will always be my heroes.

SANGER, TX/ROME, NY ~ Kenneth R. Volk, Jr., 62, of Dallas, Texas, formerly of Rome, sadly flew the last flight of his life aboard a Med Evac Air Unit to the Oklahoma University Medical Center in Oklahoma City, OK, where he was taken following a motorcycle/car accident in Rush Springs, OK, on August 11, 2013.  Surrounded by his loving family, he died two days later on August 13, 2013, as the result of his injuries.
 
“Kenny”, as he was affectionately known by his sisters, was born in Rome, NY, on June 18, 1951, the only son of Kenneth R. and Jeanne McKay Volk, Sr., and was graduated from Rome Free Academy in 1969.  He then attended Parks Aeronautical College in St. Louis, MO, and later transferred to SUNY at Geneseo from where he received his BS degree in Biology in 1973.
 
A proud veteran, he entered the US Air Force in May, 1975, at Beale AFB, CA, and served as a Navigator with the 9th AREFS, DO on a KC135 Stratotanker.  He was honorably discharged as a Captain in November, 1979.
 
Following his military service, Ken began his civilian aviation career as a corporate pilot based in Oklahoma flying mostly King Airs until 1984, after which he was hired by Oneida County, NY Airport-based Empire Airlines as a pilot flying commercial air routes.  In 1985 he accepted a Detroit-based position with Delta Northwest Airlines, where for over the next 27 years he piloted Boeing 727’s, 757’s and B767’s on innumerous domestic flights and was among the airline’s elite fleet of pilots especially trained and qualified to captain its many international routes.  Since retiring as a loyal and highly respected Captain in October, 2012 from Delta Northwest, he had continued his professional career as the President of his airplane restoration company, Olde Tyme Air, in Dallas.  He also was a respected and highly-skilled private flight instructor having taught flying and maneuvers to many students including astronauts.  
    
As a young boy, Ken had a keen interest for and enjoyed building and flying model airplanes, which undoubtedly began with his admiration for his Dad, Ken Sr., who was a decorated B-24 pilot having flown 50 missions in the Army Air Corps during WW II.  Later in life, Ken built a replica of the Stearman his Dad flew and proudly displayed it at many fly-ins and was always eager to give everyone a ride in it.  It was truly his pride and joy!  
Ken also took great pleasure in residing at the BAR-V-K Airpark in Sanger, TX, where he could land and take off in his plane at his pleasure.  Ken was also a devoted dog rescuer.  He currently had owned three “rescued” dogs and frequently donated his time and skills flying animals to their new “forever” homes for the Pilots N Paws Rescue Organization.
 
His professional memberships and affiliations included AOPA (Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association), ALPA (Airline Pilots Association International), and the Stearman Restorers Association.  He was also a member of HOG (Harley Owners Group) and loved riding his Harley which he was doing at the time of his accident.
 
Kenny was best known by all who knew him for his infectious laugh and handsome smile, his unique caring of others, his willingness to always help anyone, especially someone in need, and his absolute love for his family.
 
Surviving are his daughter, Emily Mary Volk, Denton, TX; three sisters and brothers-in-law, Sheila R. and Robert Wentworth, Sandwich (Cape Cod), MA, Barbara V. and Donald Page, Leland, NC, and Marcia V. and Paul Marcellus, Rome, NY, and nieces Courtney J. Sobrado, Leicester, NY, and Jenna C. Marcellus, Rochester, NY.
 
A Celebration of Life service will be held at his home at 6849 Falcon Loop, in Sanger, TX, on October 5, 2013.
 
Memorial Donations may be made to Pilots N Paws, c/o 4651 Howe Rd., Landrum, SC 29356.

Online obituary:  Major General David L. Stanford USAF(Ret.)

Passed away February 27, 2017. He was buried with full military honors at the National Cemetery in Sarasota Florida.

After David graduated from Shore High School in 1943 he enlisted in the Army Air Corps. He graduated pilot training at Miami Beach and then went on to B-25 combat training in 1944 where he flew combat until the end of WWII. In November 1946, he was released from active duty and immediately began his 4-decade Reserve career. With his new career came his first recall to active duty during the Berlin Air Lift (1948-49).

General Stanford earned his BA and Masters from Furman University in the late 1940's and early 1950's with additional graduate work at the University of South Carolina. While attending, he worked and flew for the newly formed United States Air Force during which time he was recalled a second time for the Korean War (1950-53).

After Korea, David began his civilian career with Northeast Airlines which merged with Delta Airline where he retired as a Captain. While flying commercially he was recalled to active duty multiple times during the Vietnam War (1955-1975) and once during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. Upon retiring from Delta David went to work for the FAA as an inspector and retired as the manager of the Miami offices of the FAA.

During David's career, he was the base commander at Homestead Air Force Base. In the 60's, he bought property in Key Largo and then built his home in 1972. The Keys drew him in with his love of sailing, fishing, and the water (The Keys Life). In addition to his home he was one of the Founders of the Upper Keys Sailing Club (1973).

David loved Life, Family & Friends. He is survived by his wife Bonnie Stanford, his sons David and Christopher Stanford, and his granddaughter Krista Stanford.
