In Memory

Wayne H. Mulgrew

Wayne perished in an airplane accident in Columbia during July, 1998.

He was apparently quite an accomplished pilot.  Read about some of his records at:

Notes From A Friend:
"I first met Wayne when I called a helicopter company in Montegue, California to do some aerial oblique photography in Grants Pass, Oregon. He owned the company and his wife answered the telephone when I called. Wayne was a helicopter pilot - he was very good at what he did. We flew many photo jobs and I always came back with great photos when Wayne was the pilot. He died later in South America on a job for the U. S. Government. I didn't find out until much later because there was a lapse in my aerial photography jobs. I was sorry to hear about his death. He was a very good helo pilot and gave me every ounce of effort he could whenever we flew together. I miss you Wayne but here is your spot in this book so everyone can remember you."  Winfield Scott Frazeur IV, Professional Photographer

 We will miss you too, Wayne.

 Wayne was the first person I looked for after finding the NSH site and was very sad to see that he had died. We spent a great deal of time together hunting and fishing during Junior High School, I can honestly say he and I were best friends. I did look him up in Napa years later when he owned Wayne's Fine Meats. It is clear that he decided to become a pilot and excelled at that. There are worse things than dying doing something you love. Wayne, RIP.

Words can't express how much I think about you Pal and every time one of these reunions come up even more so.  That one magical dove hunting trip where you landed the airplane in the Eureka Valley north of Death Valley in the creek bed and we shot doves until we ran out of shells.  Wow, only topped by the next day landing at that nice ranch house filled with women that allowed us to shower and perform other things.  He, He. Yes indeed we had some great adventures for sure.  You and I choose the path of few and followed our hearts and not society so I know you had a life full of adventure as I'm still having.  While up in Alturas a couple of weeks ago hunting I was thinking about the three of us shooting squirrels at Pollocks and brought back great memories.  We will meet again my friend.
