1952 - 2016
It with great sorrow that I have to tell you that Jimmie Hathcock died the morning of March 1 2016 when his plane, an RV6A, apparently experienced a departure stall and crashed shortly after take-off from Elmdale Airpark, Abilene, TX. Jim Carroll and his business partner were witnesses to the occurrence. Jimmie had flown to Abilene from Florida to see Jim Carroll, then on March 1 they were heading to Las Vegas to visit Rich Evans. Both Jimmie and his passenger friend were killed on impact. I will publish more details, including Services, when I get them.
Rest in Peace, Jimmie.
