 I believe you have close ties to Pat yourself, Jon. I grieve with you. Your very special Q aircraft was part of a great issue 
of Contact! His passing is a loss to all of Experiential Aviation.  Pats' long term dedication to the activity we also 
participate in drives home the deep positive character of all aviators. None of us would be pilots had we not been 
strongly dedicated AND kept a positive desire to earn our General Aviation certificates and more specifically 
as builders in Experimental Aviation. Pat flew West at about 4 pm yesterday surrounded by family at home
in Hanford California. 
 Pats' Son, Anthony, called William Wynne to inform. William and Pat were close friends.

Subject: [Q-List] Pat Panzera - Gone West
I just saw a note on VAF that Pat Panzera recently succumbed to pancreatic cancer after a long, tough fight. Afraid I don't have any details.
