Hi Guys---- It's long but you might find some of it interesting. RR
This article appeared in the Stuart News this week, in kind of a "Blast From The Past" type thing, they are featuring in the Stuart News about "Stuart Old Timers" of note. .
JUST FYI------ What cannot REALLY BE EMPHASIZED enough, is that Zack made it from a BOY, in a hick town in Oklahoma, to achieving national name recognition, ENTIRELY on his own---- his own imagination, drawing skill/talent, guts, and drive.----- He had no help from his parents at all. I repeat "none at all"-- inspirationally nor financially. My Dad was not a successful man when it came to making money.--- Also Zack was the most wonderfully generous person I have ever known, and I never heard of a person that did not like Zack. AND, Like WILL ROGERS ( another "Well Loved Okie"), Zack liked everyone he met also.
Zack was more like a father to me than a brother, what with being 16 years older than I. Zack made my whole flying career possible.-----
NO I"M NOT DRINKING-------. I JUST LOVED THE GUY.
