Thanks for the info. As is the way of the world, more and more of our colleagues are passing on, as regrettable as that may be. I don't remember either of those chaps. Perhaps it would be helpful if anyone posting this info would include links to their obits, or at least the state in which they lived so we can do it ourselves.


As for the ransomware hack, I've taken various precautions against that, which may or may not work. I don't know how yours was resolved, but I'll be damned if I'll pay any of those criminals to get my computer back if such should happen. I keep extensive backups, and before I'll let myself be extorted I'll buy a new hard drive and restore my computer to that one. Any excuse to buy a newer, bigger, better and faster hard drive!

EDIT: A search turned up Irwin's, but couldn't find Rowen's:
Tom Irwin

Both Tom and Wendell were former F8 Crusader pilots, Tom in the USN and Wendell in the USMC. Tom retired as the VP for Flight Opns and Wendell was Chief Pilot for STL. Tom lived in South Carolina and Wendell lived in MKC.
