Q Family Memories


 

I ran across this and knew several of you might know who this is.
Fond memories of a really nice couple.

I have several memories of them and am sure many of you do too.
They also did something for the group that still is seen among the Q family.
Who are they and who all knows what that might be?

I'll post a photo of it if no one can remember.

If it helps, it looks like maybe that name tag has Dave as the first name and last name starting with R.  Robinson maybe?

I believe he did the newsletter during that time as well. Truly a great couple.

Yes, Dave and Susie DID do the Newsletter. and were no end of fun and laughter at all of the fly-ins they both attended.  AND known for the hilarious  "... you just might be a tandem-winger" routine!  They had us rolling with laughter in the aisles at Sullivan and one other fly-in with that.  Some of us had been in contact with Susie in recent years.  A number of our builder/pilots who knew Dave flew his towel  in their plane and logged the flight time in a special logbook, Susie has both his towel and logbook now.  Truly delightful couple, and still sorely missed.  Thanks for that, Keith!

Wow, yes, lots of memories.  Dave is truly missed.  I think he came up with the line "Together we build better airplanes".

Good folk indeed.
I was fortunate enough to know them both. 
Also was able to take his towel on cross country, from Emporia to KDEH.
Don’t recall where or how he got any farther.

Jennifer and I got to know Dave and Suzie fairly well.  After Dave died we got to spend some time with Suzie at Jefferson County (I think it was there, been along time since then).  She is a strong woman .

They were indeed really nice people and  spent a lot of time with the Q community and definitely contributed a lot.  Dave is missed.

Jerry,
That's right  He and Suzie attended, I believe, all our gatherings including the ones Steve Laribee and I hosted at Mattoon for a couple of years. 
Terry and I drove to Ohio for his visitation.  No way I could not say goodbye when he and Suzie were so good to us.  I remember Suzie was nearly overcome when Terry and I walked in.
I believe, if I remember correctly, a few other Q people went to his visitation as well.  There's no doubt something special about the common thread which brings us together.
If I also remember right, he had given his dad a ride in his Q shortly before his passing and Suzie continued attending our events for a few years afterwards.

How many of you have seen these shirts and wondered from where they came.  They were Dave and Suzie's creation.
Of their many contributions to the Q family this one will likely live on for many years.

I can't thank them enough for the fond memories.

WOW!!!
A huge THANK YOU! to everyone for sharing your memories of Dave and Suzie.
I was taken a little off guard by all of your responses.  That was something I didn't expect.
It's just further proof of what they both meant to the Qmunity.

Like many of you I have a stack of photos from past Q events.  I haven't seen them in many years until recently when the wife found them in a box.
And there was Dave & Suzie.  I don't even remember taking that picture but I knew how much they meant to me and thought others might like seeing the photo as well.

Thank you again to all of you.
