Sad to hear that. A decent man. The last time I did an FAA medical with him he refused any payment. RIP.

I read this in New Zealand

A wonderful and magnificent man - and, with his like-minded colleague, Terry Rown - a colossus who modernised Private Flying in Ireland by sheer example

With much pride I remember, as an instructor, 49 years ago, sharing with Denis Geene the honour of attempting to get him his PPL before the birth of his 2nd son Colly

No success! : I remember word of the birth reaching us as we were flying over Long Kesh
