I just stumbled across this site today (6-15-2021) Tom was my Uncle, he was married to my fathers sister. I was 11 years old when he passed. I grew up very close to Timmerman Field and have fond memories of riding my bike to the airport to watch his airplane. If anyone has more photos of his plane(s) or any information about his accident, I would be very grateful for those. I have been flying for many years and own and fly an A36 Bonanza. Thank you for this site.

Homer “Bud” Rountree was my uncle. One of his Mustangs was stored at the Redding airport. I used to ride my bike out there, open the canopy and sit in it, dreaming I was a fighter pilot. When he bought the two Mustangs they threw in a Merlin Rolls Royce engine still in the crate. He stored it in an old shed in Anderson, CA. I think Ted Contri bought that too, after Bud died

Bud Fountain was my uncle, my mother's brother. I worked for him during the summer when I was in high school. I loaded Sulphur and flagged for him when he, Jack Sperry and Don Taylor sprayed. It was a treat to see them fly and as someone earlier noted, seeing how low they flew over the treetops. Many times, people would stop on the road and watch them. One of my more memorable moments was when he was in the P-51, he circled the strip at the ranch and then buzzed it at about 50 feet above the ground. It was an unbelievable sight as he flew by and then did a slow roll as he ascended. I saw his acrobatics many times in the "Candy Kid". Bud, Jack and Clyde were tremendous pilots with 1,000's of hours of flying but it just goes to show anything can happen. We all miss him. He was one of my first heroes. Someone wondered earlier if Bud had any children. He had one son, Jerry Fountain, who still resides in Denair.

I have some sad news for those of you who were involved with Holiday Magic Cosmetics or any of our family of companies.

Two of our Super Stars were John and Donna Sue Carr, originally of Chicago. They were a picture perfect duo, she being a Top 3 contender in the Miss Universe contest back in the late 60's.

Sadly, we lost Donna Sue last year (2020). And I just received an email from John saying he in was in Hospice Care in Santa Rosa California with only "a week or 10 days" left before he achieves "Final Lift Off" and goes to join Donna Sue.

They were very special people and dear friends for over 50 years.

Today is a sad day for me and all who knew them.

Please send prayers and good thoughts to both of them.

I realize that this is an old thread, but, just to round things out, I am Glenn. My dad was Gerry Morrison, the yet named co-owner of Aero Sport. I just found your site. I now volunteer at the Palm Springs Air Museum. A shout out to Gary Hoisington. I see Mike Nightingale (sp?) on a regular basis. The nephew of the other owner. Small world.
