RIP Richard Green 810012
« on: February 14, 2021, 09:09:15 PM »
Sadly, Richard Green (810012), one of VATSIM's first members, has lost his battle with cancer and passed away.  Richard had served as a VATUSA staff member from VATSIM's inception through 2006, as a VATSIM Supervisor, as a founding member of the team that organized the weekly VATUSA Friday Night Ops (FNO event), and VATSIM's Cross the Pond events.

Richard's love for VATSIM helped ignite his passion to fly in the real world, becoming an airline pilot in 2007.

Richard will be missed.

This is sad news.
Richard took me under his wing in the early days of CTP and helped him with events.
He loved aviation and VATUSA.

Rest in peace Richard.
