This is one of the hangers that JO Dockery and my Dad, Frank Deregibus built with regularity. The tornados would rip them up and they would go back and sink the footings deeper the next day.

Actually, I called my Dad on this one and he says the guy on my left is Joe Melton. He owned the plane. The same plane that my Dad flew on the ill-fated trip to Monterrey Mexico back in 1958.

The man on the right in this picture is Don Mecoy who was minister at First Christian Church in Colorado City. Don and I served the church from 1956 to 1960. Don learned to fly while we lived there. I think he took lessons from Frank (probably your dad DeRegibus). I remember Frank owned a dealership. I remember that planes used to buzz our house so Don would know to go to the landing strip to pick the pilot/and maybe passengers up & bring them to town. I also remember Joe Melton. Because of the flying he & Don became friends. I seem to remember that Joe got off course on his first cross country flight & landed at the wrong airport. You mention the plane crash and I remember a lot about the days following because the Simpsons were members of our church. You can contact me thru my facebook page.

To Ed: I just read on the Record web page of the passing of Frank. I want to offer my condolences.

Thank you Mrs.Musser, thanks for clearing that up. my memories get kinda murky, when I go back that far and of course, now I don't have Dad to ask for clarification. So thanks and also thanks for the condolences. My Mom and Dad were married 64 years so of course, Mom is dealing with it. Ed
