I am sad to report that longtime SDC and Midway Chapter member George Martin passed away from a long illness the afternoon of Monday, February 22nd of 2016. George had a special love for Studebaker trucks. He was a brilliant electronics engineer, with a long career at Beechcraft. George collaborated on many "special projects", especially the covert surveillance aircraft for America's spy agencies and the military. George had the look of an easy going "good old boy" that hid a sharp mind with clever humor. George seldom failed to attend a chapter meeting without telling at least one good joke. He will be missed. Plans for funeral services are not known at this time.
