Happy 64th Birthday to Screwy!

This is his wife - Jenny...

Last weekend - this happened in the Black Rock Desert...

BALLS 27 - Experimental Rocketry - Sept 21, 22, 23, 2018

https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/a...ent-in-america


Clark and I have gone out to this event many times since 2008. We shared a love of the stars and of ROCKETS! He took his kids, grandkids and any other kids who wanted to come for ROCKETS in the diggins!

At 2 a.m. on Sunday, son Jordan, nephew Brahm and I took some of Clark's ashes to Gerlach and parked in front of Bruno's for a few winks then drove out to the 12 mile gate and east - met the dust of some other people who were going that way...

We got to the site - the gentlemen I followed were part of the Registration staff - I told him I was on a mission - we were there in time for the morning announcements.

The flight director asked for someone to give Clark a ride...

A group of people turned to me and an older gentleman walked forward and took my hands, he said he would be honored - Ron from Anchorage.

We got acquainted, he said his far downrange launch was in the early afternoon... he would take pictures. He promised Clark would be
"ON THE NOSE" - LMAO!

It felt good to continue the adventure with him! The highest compliment he ever paid me? I don't have a wife, I have an ACCOMPLICE!

The avatar change is a goof-up but maybe not. It's a picture of him at a hot springs off 395 - I called it "Big Yoni Springs" - and don't remember what the real name is. I can only hope he is enjoying being celestial again...


This seems like such a meager thank you to all you pirates -

I have been truly shaken, torn asunder, overwhelmed, surrounded and loved and cared for... thank you doesn't begin to express my deep gratitude.

I am unsure about the date of his Celebration of Life. I have approval for mitral valve replacement I need to use before the end of the year-waiting for a surgery date. I wish they could have given me his heart... but I already had it, that I know.

Peace -

Jenny

Hi Jenny,

That is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing Screwy's birthday blast into the many-mile-high club.


And thank you for leading off with:

Screwy might've skipped that step, but he could be a bit of a dick sometimes




Did anyone else experience chills by reading the screen name & pausing to wrap their head around it before reading Jenny's post?

That's great. I recall he hadn't replied to my response about blackrock as APHRA was no longer hosting.

Damn fine sendoff, many of us with similar plans.

Jenny,

Please know that you and your family have been in my thoughts since I read this horrible news.

You probably know this, but your husband positively impacted many lives, including mine, without ever having met him.

I am subscribed to this thread, and when I received the notification I was shaken to read that "Screwzer2" had posted in it.

Clark is smiling with such a gift.

That is good to hear , I as well have thought about him and you quite frequently even though we have never met . Since Screwy past my wife has put a gnome in the landscape to the front patio. She knows nothing of the pirate life,but every time I walk past I see him stairing at me
