This week  we celebrated the life of and said goodbye to our dear friend Bob.

Lt. Col. Robert Chaverez, USAF (Ret.) has “gone West”.

A veteran of the Vietnam War in F4 phantoms, winner of the Bronze Star (for ground combat!) and an aeronautical engineer, Bob was one of the most beloved CAF members, both at the Wing and by the public. He was a tour docent until he was not longer physically able. Bob was always available for lectures to schools, civic groups, and veterans gatherings, including Memorial Day commemorations in Camarillo, Oxnard and Ventura.

It was an honor to have him in our organization and call him a friend. He will be dearly missed.
