Jerry “Bud” Lester Dow1956 – November 12, 2012
PAVE LOW Flight Engineer Bud Dow was killed in a motorcycle accident on 12 November. He was traveling with his girlfriend, who was also killed in the crash. They were on a motorcycle crossing a bridge in Thailand when it happened. The exact details are not as important as that many of us had a deep admiration of Bud. His son, whom he had not seen for 12 years was visiting him in Thailand and is there dealing with this tragedy.
It goes without saying that if there’s anything Bud’s family needs, we will be there for them.
