President's Message


I again have to pass along sad news. I received a call today from Jocelyn, johns wife, that John had passed away on Monday after noon from a heart attack. John Stevens was our chapter Vice president and active in chapter business and attended our board meeting on April 5th recovering from a leg operation using a walker. That's dedication and commitment John provided to our chapter and it's membership. Jocelyn indicated John loved being part of our chapters meetings and gatherings.

John loved aviation, the nuts and bolts and particularly engines and in February general meeting gave a presentation on Pratt and Whitney Radial engines. John was a great and interesting guy, he also loved Ford Mustangs and owned and drove a view. It was a personal shock to me hearing this news and will sorely miss my right hand man and friend.

Please take a few moments for a prayer to John and particularly  his family in this time of grief and pain. I've said mine!

Your president, Nels E. Carlson
