Linda and Family of Boots. I’m saddened to hear of your loss and pray God will comfort you and protect you. Linda, I never knew Boots, but have contact with many in the USAF helicopter family who did and who will all be saddened to know that Boots has taken his final flight. The passing of your husband and best friend leaves you with such a tremendous loss, which I hope that time and the memory of the life you shared together will help ease. Boots was a member of our USAF RotorHeads group ( and we were honored to have him join with us. His service to our country in the USAF helicopter career field is something we all honor and thank him for.
