I was informed last night by Bob Collins that Hap Peper passed away friday 7/24/2020 at his home. He had a massive heart attack and was gone quickly.
I have talked to his wife Joan and she will provide a OBIT I will publish here. His funeral will be in a year if possible.
I had just talked to him 2 weeks ago and he was improving and he hoped he would be in a walker by Sept and come to the reunion.
Alas he did not make it. We have lost 3 of these guys recently. ENOUGH ALREADY. I understand a couple more of them are not in good health.
This is getting down to the last few people who flew the P5M-1 in the Fifties.
I will publish Hals OBIT when I get it. Reach out to his wife Joan if you remember them please.
