Hugh Ross Passed Away On Feb 12th, 2015

Hugh Ross

Another of our fraternity has died… Hugh Ross was killed on Feb 12, 2015 in a head on traffic accident. Hugh has been a long time friend and assistant to Dave in his hang gliding and paragliding business. Hugh was a Vietnam Vet that suffered from PTSD due to war experiences. Anyone that has been out flying with Dave in the last 15 years knows Hugh as a knowledgeable and helpful soul to those of us that fly. He was a H3 or 4 and flew for many years and traveled around the USA with Dave, flying in Utah, Oklahoma and NM. Dave has helped Hugh with his medical and personal problems for many years. The true mark of a friend is who’s around to help when the chips are down….
We are such a small group that it is more like a family than just friends. This week has been tough to accept.

    I am so sorry for your loss of your dear friend and flying buddy. It sounds like Hugh was much loved, respected, and a real friend. May his loss comfort you in that you all shared great times with him and that you may fly together once again in the heavens!
