I worked with Herb at Fairchild in the 80' s and we became close friends and he educated me about vintage aircraft and the joys of air shows. We drifted apart but I have thought of him often. RIP Herb.

John will be deeply missed. He made me smile at work. I enjoyed the time I had with him,work isn’t the same without him. His smile was so wonderful. My prayers are with his family at this time.
