Charter member, John Gaylord, ¡Presente!

On October 7, 2021 we lost one of Linus Pauling Chapter’s charter members.

John Gaylord was a former Air Force and retired Continental Airlines pilot. He joined VFP as we started the Corvallis chapter in 2006.

You can read his nice obituary in the Gazette-Times here.

John was also active with the Corvallis chapter of the Audubon Society where, among other projects, he helped to restore Kincaid’s lupine as habitat for the endangered Fender’s Blue butterfly.

John has “slipped the surly bonds of earth” one last time. [quoted from High Flight, a poem by aviator, John Gillespie Magee.]

Captain John Gaylord, ¡PRESENTE!

John Gaylord, 1936 – 2021

Our sincere condolences go out to John’s wife, Jody, and his children, Stacy and Kent.
