I only knew Dirk thru his Mom, Virginia. You see, when Dirk's father passed away Virginia called my Dad to see if we could take over his Customs Brokerage business. I was young and single so I moved to Canaveral to take over the business. Virginia would have me over each Wed. night for dinner. She was a good cook and she talked often of her son who was a pilot. She was very proud of him. Rest in peace. Ken Watkins, September 26, 2019 Our condolences to you and your family. Dick and Marlen Fuller, November 18, 2018 I knew Dirk through the DFW home shop machinist club which he led. His leadership and expertise will be sorely missed.
James Hudson, November 14, 2018 Sharon and family, we are so sorry to hear of Dirk's passing. We pray that you will experience God's comfort in your grief. David and Diane Bryant, November 14, 2018 I knew Dirk from the Hobby Machinist Group - I appreciated his knowledge and enthusiasm for whatever he did as well as his thirst for knowledge for that which is new. He will be missed. Anthony Nagy, November 14, 2018 My wife and I are deeply sorry for your loss. Dirk and I have been friends since I became a member of the North Texas Machinist Club.

Alison Schneck, November 12, 2018 I am deeply sorry for your loss. Dirk has always been a valuable asset to the Silver Eagles and will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Dirk, may you have smooth air and clear skies on your flight west. Steve Humphrey, November 12, 2018 We will miss Dirk, his smile, and great attitude at Braniff DFW lunchbunch. He was so kind to bring other pilots with him and taking pictures with his super camera. This came as such a shock. He had been battling medical conditions the last couple of years but fought them and won. This last one must have been bigger than him. He loved being a pilot and was a terrific metal worker. Rest in Heavenly peace dear Dirk and His peace to your family, Sharyn Finnegan Braniff Flight Hostess Sharyn Finnegan, November 12, 2018 So sorry to hear about your Dad. I worked with your Mom at Braniff. Our prayers are with you. Charlotte Cebell , November 12, 2018 We are deeply sorry for your loss. Dirk and I have been friends since our first Braniff years in 1965. We were great friends in the cockpit and on control line circles where we flew model airplanes. Our love of model airplanes and the company of our Braniff comrades continued to the end. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Al and Mia Rabe Al and Mia Rabe, November 11, 2018 We are so sorry for your loss. Bob be & Ralph Thompson, November 11, 2018
