Sorry to report that one of the legends of rev flying and fellow IKE member, Rich Comras, has passed away. He was quaa714 on this forum, and he would post here to go flying whenever he was in Chicago. I know I'll miss him on the field, he was a great guy and always was about having fun while flying kites. He taught me a lot about flying revs (especially low wind, and the axel). I still can't axel for shit . . . . but I bet I'll think of Rich the next time I try.

A terrible loss. I didn't know things had gotten so bad lately, was just thinking last week that I hoped to see him at Kite Party. I'll miss his constant joy, happiness, positivity... He had a remarkable attitude about his illness. It never beat him down, he kept living life to the fullest. I'm so glad I knew him.

I'm not sure that we ever met, but I'll miss him anyway. I would have liked to fly with him someday in this life. Smooth winds to you, Rich.

Kiters are raising money to donate kites to kids who are diagnosed with cancer in honor of Rich's memory.
