    Wow!

    I spent time with Doc on my cross-country Vantainer run gosh, 2 years ago(?) He was very gracious and I spent a couple of days there at his home. At the time, he was building a nice shop on his property and had several VCVs in the back lot. I was looking forward to seeing him at the NATS along with his THM 200R4 offerings. He was a solid VCVanner. Friendly, reliable and well loved. We'll miss you my friend.
    With condolences to the family.

    That's really a shame. Doc was a very solid brother and sold me a bunch of parts that i used for my builds. He will be missed.
