Passing of Gary Cox

The North Coast RC Modelers club is saddened by the recent loss of a founding club member, Gary Cox on April 5, 2018.  Gary was one of the original members who helped start our club in the early 1980’s. He remained an active participant in the hobby and in this club until his passing.  He was an early adopter of RC technologies, the first of us trying newly introduced improvements to radio control aircraft such as aerial photography systems, electric brushless motors, lithium batteries, newer radio systems, quad rotors and RC helicopters.   Gary helped many people to get started in the hobby. We will miss him greatly.  I have added some photos of Gary Gary, his planes, his early 90’s aerial photos and early 90’s video experiments in this Memorial Photo Gallery that are in addition to the many other photos of him located elsewhere on this web site.  You can read more about Gary’s life and passing in this nice obituary published in the Tillamook Headlight Herald Newspaper.
