Post subject:  Passing og F/Sgt J.W.G. Guy Fortier

I received my copy of Airforce Magazine in the mail on Friday and noted the passing away of Guy Fortier in the Last Posting Section. Guy was the author of"I Mean-Is That All You Do-Play In The Band" featured in the Base History Section of Baden-Soellingen Remembered. It is a necessary read for anyone interested in 4 Wing's early history. Guy was an avide booster of anything and everything RCAF. To know him was indeed an enriching experience for anyone who shared his love for airforce blue. I was stationed in 4 Wing during his time there and to the best of my recollection it is a fairly true account of the times. I served on the Base Entertainment Committee and worked with Guy in that capacity. A couple of years ago we hooked up again via EMail and he sent me a copy of his book. Rest in Peace Guy Fortier when they made you they threw away the mold.
