    Paul Letorneau, a longtime member of Sky Soaring, recently passed away. Although Paul visited the field infrequently over the past few years, primarily due to health issues, in his younger years he was a valued and very active member of the Club. Paul served on the Board, was responsible for new members orientation, collected dues and supported the Club in many other ways. He and his wife Judy were often at the field, and she occasionally flew with him. Prior to joining Sky Soaring, Paul was a member of Northern Illinois Soaring. When that organization shut down, Paul came to SSI and brought their L-23 with him. The L-23 flew for many years and trained a number of new pilots. Paul always flew that ship when he was at the field. He was a good friend to those of us who flew with him and will be sorely missed.


    There is a condolence card in the lobby on the table. Members are encouraged to sign the card. There will be a service for Paul on October 15 at St. Askar Church, 4801 Springcreek Rd., Rockford, Illinois 61107. Visitation will start at 2:00 p.m. followed by the service at 3:00p.m. A lunch will follow the service.


    Donations in Paul’s name can be made to the Natural Land Institute.
