Chapter 52 Sacramento, CA

John R Crouse


Well know flier, instructor, and former EAA 52 member, JOHN R. CROUSE, died unexpectedly August 29, 2012 while on his way to fly with another student. He graduated from El Camino High School and from CSU, Sacramento.  John will be remembered as a pilot and flight instructor at Executive Airport and first and foremost; he flew commercially for Emery Cargo.  He was a member of the Quiet Birdmen.  John was a "Donate Life" donor and is laid to rest at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, Dixon, California.

John was doing what he loved most, he was on his way to another flight.

"John, your love of aviation will be multiplied many times into the future through the fliers whom you have taught.  Goodbye good friend."  EAA 52
