Knew these guys well as both friends and associates…they were students at Western in my early days in London, and not only did they hang around the station, a lot, but after this hit when they did their own tour of Western Canada I signed on as road manager…great memories…Gary is now on a mission (religious) in China, and Dave just recently retired as senior flight training inspector for the government, which is sort of like the guy who gives you your driving test, but thousands of feet in the air…
