View Full Version : Captain Dick Colby
It is my sad duty to report, Captain Dick Colby (HMM 263/RVN 1967) passed away March 14. Captain Colby had been waiting for a lung transplant for quite some time but had to deal with many medical set backs and couldn't quite get back into shape for the procedure. Dick was one of the good guys, a great pilot, fun to be around and he will be missed.
Will pass on funeral details when they become available.
