Default Geoffrey Kerbel

I just read on Facebook that Geoffrey Kerbel passed away in his sleep while attending NARAM. He was Maniac BAR on here. I met him at NARAM 55 (?) outside of Akron in 2013. Nice guy with great taste in cars.

Geoffrey and I flew together out in Arizona the last few New Years days. This last January 1st he flew an amazing 3 stage egglofter altitude attempt. Flight was great, arrow straight, but no deployment.

Geoffrey was always huge fun to fly with. Really inventive and fun.

I will truly miss him.
