Crooker Remembered

Current and former members of the Lebanon squadron were in attendance at Steve Crooker’s memorial service today. Crooker was a long time member of the Lebanon squadron and was commander of the squadron in the early 90s. During his command, he and the cadets at the time designed and constructed a full size motion flight simulator that enabled the squadron to receive recognition and awards at the local and national level.

Pictured above at the memorial service are former cadets holding a photo of the squadron with the flight simulator they built. From left to right, the former cadets are Colin Skinner, Adam Bouchard, Jorgen Strycharz, Kevin Guay, and Erin O’Connell, Crooker’s niece.

Below is a full size of the photo they are holding with Crooker holding the plaque the squadron received in recognition of their achievement. Unfortunately, the flight simulator was destroyed a couple years ago when the building it was stored in burned.
