      You probably never met him in person, but as kooky as he seemed was exactly as kooky as he was. He was 100% bona-fide Real Deal nutso. A lot of people didn't get it or didn't appreciate it, but I sure did. I only met him once but he was exactly as you would expect and it was great. We lost something when he died.

   As a personal aside, he greatly encouraged me in my photography, more-or-less going out of his way to say so. I had a fair bit of conversation with him in private, and he was my #1 fan and coming from a very accomplished professional artist, it really meant something to me.

Looks like I missed meeting a great one.  I really enjoyed the photos and commentary of his writing.  He is missed. :(

Don could be goofy at times and was a genuine character, but a nicer guy you will never meet. He was always willing to help and we had many a long discussion on not just model planes, though there was a lot of that, but on all kinds of topics. I remember sitting in a coffee shop in Gig Harbor and talking about the nature of judging, psychology and perception. He was a bright guy and I miss him tremendously.

Which one of you two is going to try and take his place?  Yes, I know he can't be replaced. H^^

Unfortunately, I never got to meet Schultzie in person..... I did have MANY phone conversations with Don and came to really respect him.  A finer, or more talented, guy we could never meet and I really miss him.

What a magnificently talented guy. 'miss his friendly and funny posts and especially his art, when he chose to show us some. I really appreciated seeing the old pictures and reading the stories.
