Once a month, a group of pilots would get together for a meal and some stories (some of the stories were even true!). I would often arrive early; so would Ev. His history, in aviation, far exceeded mine, and he would tell me tales of when he built a Wittman Tailwind (airplane), with a modified airfoil, and flew it. He told me some of his tales of flying a B-25. He talked about buying and selling airplanes. It was a joy for this pilot to have conversation with him. He will be missed by many of his fellow QBs. A great aviator has left the sky.

My favorite memory is when Don and I brought my daughter to visit in 1990, your dad answered the door and took one look at Jennifer. He said you haven't changed in all these years. Your mom had to tell him it wasn't me.

"Burro"--Ev--from your fellow QB aviation members!
It's traditional that when an old-time aviator dies, it is said he has "Gone West"--not died. The term originated in the Barnstormer days of the 1920s. I has several meanings--that the pilot hadn't died--he simply wasn't around any more. Since pilots were itinerant--hopping paying passenger rides from town to town--it may mean that he has "Gone West" to a place where the business was better. Given that he was a Minnesota resident, it may also mean that he has "Gone West" into the setting sun--to a place where it is warm and sunny--especially important in the open-cockpit airplanes of the time. In any case, the pilot isn't forgotten--we toast the memory of our friends "Gone West" every month.
