I learned this morning that Bob Wingfield passed away yesterday.
Bob was one of the original members of Black Diamond. He was instrumental in Black Diamond getting our MOU many many years ago, from the paperwork to testing and evaluation.
Bob was an instructor in the SAR program and spent many hours and years dedicated to teaching new SAR students.

Please keep his wife of 44 years, Patsy, daughter Sarah and the grandkids in your thoughts and prayers.
