As we gathered in Muncie last Wednesday, several of us received an email from Marcy Green letting us know that Orv Olm had passed away.
Orv was known, if only by his nickname, throughout the Free Flight world. He changed the way that many, many Free Flighters prop their rubber planes and adjust their thrust settings.
He suffered in the last several months with what turned out to be some sort of cancer, with lung cancer being the secondary cancer (he chose to stop research and treatment when they realized there was “more”).
I don’t know what to say…I’m sure most are already aware of his passing, but I feel we need to acknowledge what he meant to us – which was a lot.
