We lost another good one - Azarr

I just got some bad news for my RC friends. Our old RC friend Azarr has passed away. He and Mike Glass were running buddies. He was the first person in the hobby I met at a show after I started working with Hobby Lobby. I didn't know him but he knew me. As I walked on to the field he shouted "BILLY HELL!!" I walked over and shook his hand and we have been friends for the last 13 years or so. I always took his photo if I saw him at an event and usually interviewed him. The RC world has lost a friend today. Maybe he's hanging with Mike Glass and they are doing a little flying. God speed Azarr and thank you for your friendship all these years!!

I just saw this on Facebook. I'm somewhere between disbelief and shock right now. That's all I can say.

I learned to fly at the old SMAC field in Donnelsville, Ohio (Bob Laybourne's Hobby Hanger)near where I grew up. Azarr was always there flying and was a great help in those early years. During the AirFlair years, Azarr and Bob Coonts (sp?) always flew the most interesting models.

I saw Azarr last November at the annual SMAC swap meet the day after Thanksgiving. It was great to catch up with him again, and I always enjoyed hearing what he had to say and seeing the new things he was working on.

So sorry to hear the news of his passing.

RIP old friend.

Soar like an Eagle, buddy. You've earned it. Azarr was with us from the start when the "electric wave" hit almost 20 years ago. All the way from "will a Speed 400 fly that thing?" to today's very commonplace status of electrics at the field and industry. One heck of a guy. Indeed, you will be very missed....
