The EAA240 Board has learned of the recent passing of two of our membership:
Clayton Downes. Clayton was a long time member who regular attended our meetings and events. He was an enthusiastic reader of aviation books. He made every use of the EAA240 library, spending many hours studying. Clayton had many friends amongst the membership, and will be missed.
Richard Thompson passed away suddenly last month from a heart condition. Richard had many aviation interests and several projects underway. He was also a great dancer! He often prompted the chapter to hold events involving dance, and was thrilled when we held our TriMotor Evening Event- that included dancing in the hangar! Richards family are holding a remembrance service on Saturday November 3rd at 2 pm. Location for service will be at Quaker Friends, Willistown, 7069 Goshen rd. Newtown sq. Pa.19073.
Our collective thoughts and best wishes are with the the families of both Clayton and Richard.
