Good evening all ,

My father who's screenname was RBSHOOKS , passed away in Florida on September 5th , 2019 . His real name was Roger Smith .

Throughout my whole life , he enjoyed building and flying rc planes among his many other hobbies . Originally from Connecticut , he used to go off

to the meets with my mom and I in tow , especially for his competitions. I remember how much he loved to fly and how happy it made him . I

remember listening to him laughing like a little kid when they are all excited about something new while trying to explain to me about the air

currents as his glider danced across the sky . In his later years , due to the advancement of his diabetes , he was no longer able to go to the flying

fields which I know made him sad . Knowing how much he loved doing this , I wanted to make sure that his planes weren't just thrown away . Due

to covid , it has taken me almost 2 years to retrieve his rc kit collection , I am currently liquidating it and I do have a list of the planes and engines , if

anyone is interested . Part of the money from this will go to memorial gathering that we were not able to do in Connecticut so that his friends and

the rest of our family can share their stories and honor him the way he deserved to be . Thank you for reading this and if you knew my dad

personally , I welcome the stories to add his memorial.
