Rest in Peace, gentlemen.

Re: American Aces Died in 2008

So many in such a short period. May they all rest in peace.

It's frustrating for me to learn, posthumously, that I lived so near to so many (I'm in central Florida and travel the entire state). Is there a source where I can find out who is still in my neck of the woods such that I may contact for interviews etc, ?

Re: American Aces Died in 2008

YORK, Robert Miles, 5, September 19, 2008, Scarborough, Maine

A late discovery:
GRAHAM, Vernon Earl, 5, January 2, 2006, Santa Maria, California (?)

Recent research has discovered:
BROWN, Robert Harold, 7, December 20, 1975, Norwood, Massachusetts

And I believe that Robert Reynolds died in December 28, 1977, in Orlando, Florida, but I have been unable to match the ace with the deceased (other than the names are the same, with the same birth year, and the ace listed Orlando as his hometown).

RIP.

Frank.
