Tom passed away January 7, 2015.
Long time AZ Balloon Club member, LTA pilot
and all around good guy,
Tom always had a smile on his face and along with his wife Niki,
both were a big part of the club in the 80's & 90's.
Roger passed away December23, 2014
If there was anything to say about Roger, the
common story would be of Roger appearing out of nowhere to help
you pack away your balloon, and he would usually show up before
your crew got there. Before you knew it or could thank
him, he was gone chasing down another balloon. Looks like
he's done it again.

Mike was a long time member of the AZ Balloon
Club and his fine spirit will surely be missed by all.
