Default Ron Banks - Nampa Idaho

Ron Banks of Nampa Idaho passed away last Thursday. His service is today at the Mission Aviation Fellowship at 3:00.

Ron was a real nice guy. He came over to my house a couple times to look at my build and to my hangar once I moved the fuselage there. He was working on his 7 while he was a missionary and working on the mission planes. I got the chance to see his work at his house and he was a good "mechanic". It looked well done.

Ron's wife is as nice as Ron was. Keep her, their children and grandkids in your prayers. His service is today, April 4, at the Mission Aviation Fellowship right next to the Nampa airport.
