Rod Trowbridge memorial Cook airfield fl

The Best Celebration of Life We Could Think Of!

The namesake of our event is in tribute and celebration of the late Rod Trowbridge. In addition to a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, Rod Trowbridge was a skilled pilot of his Cessna 182. Mr. Trowbridge passed in the spring of 2020 and with the coronavirus regulations in full shut-down mode, a proper visitation and celebration was not allowed at the time. 

As time has passed and the quarantines have lifted however, we could not think of a better memorial than inviting fellow pilots from around the country to fly in and join us for a day of celebration, fun and festivities. With friends, family and our entire community invited to join us as well, our event is a day packed full of fun, and memorial to all that we have lost in this past year.

 

With the challenges in place for public gatherings, we realize our loved one was not the only one that was alone in their passing, and we hope others might attend our event in their own personal tribute as well. And whether able to attend, we do invite anyone that would like to memorialize their loved ones and include them in our celebration of life(s)!

We invite you to join us in memorializing, blessing, rejoicing and celebrating loved ones we have lost.

In Memory:

May you rest in peace here on Earth, and forever rejoice in God's kingdom above. Until we are reunited again, know that you are loved and missed. And you are never forgotten. In Jesus' name, Amen.

If you knew Ken, you knew that he had a wild sense of humor.  Name a topic and he could tell you a joke.  Some of the jokes were clean and some weren’t.  His best jokes were “knock-knock” jokes that he would search out and write down to make sure he had some in his pocket when he saw Malia, his great niece.  They took turns telling these jokes, it was the highlight of his day.

Those who knew Charlotte will remember her feisty, no-nonsense approach to life. An approach that was occasionally or frequently enhanced with original combinations of colorful language. Those who knew Charlotte will also recall that she did not mince words or suffer fools, and if she had a problem with you, well, she’d be the first one to let you know. She’d also be the first one to help a friend or a friend of a friend, or a total stranger who had fallen on hard times. She was truly one-of-a-kind and a force of nature in the way she lived and the way she loved.

Gayvohn was such a sweet, loving soul. She always had a smile, and always had a helping hand to offer. She had an unsuspecting sense of adventure too always wanting to do things completely unexpected, like zip lining!
