  7. To the Glutz family,
    I will always remember Erwin as a wonderful, calm
    teacher at the Steve Johnson Range. He always had a kind word, and came to my rescue several times when
    I first started at the range as RO. I will miss his wonderful smile and welcoming attitude. He was a wonderful man. I am sorry for your loss.

    I am saddened to see Erwins passing, I know your loss and how it will effect you and I am sorry. I knew him from the APRA, BTSA. he always greeted me with a smile and well wishes, even asked how my children were doing even though he only met them once or twice. He was a good man, feel comfort in those memories. We are strengthened by those memories even though we feel sorrow in his loss.
