I remember Quintus as Mary Ann's big brother. What a very special young man he was then, so friendly and kind to a neighborhood kid! I send my sympathy to all the family.

I had the pleasure of recording his marvelous rendition of training and rescue at a USAF Helicopter Association reunion. I sent him a copy of the video so his mother could view it. I would be pleased to provide one as a memento if you so desired. It happens to be one of my favorite memories of special people I was fortunate enough to encounter over the years.

I grew up with Quintus and am deeply saddened by the news of his passing. May the Lord Jesus have mercy on his soul.
