  • Remembering Mark Grassnig, Ford Launch Mgr.

    Many of you may remember Mark Grassnig from the 60th Anniversary, he signed alot if your Thunderbirds. He was the Ford Program Launch Manager for the Retros and a good friend of Ron's. Mark passed away from an unforseen medical emergency that happened on May 13th. Please pray for his girlfriend Sue Estep and Mark's family.
    I had a couple pictures to post, but I don't know how.

          Liz, so sorry to hear about, Mark. I know he was a special friend to Ron. If I remember correctly, your Merlot originally belonged to his brother. Prayers for his family and friends. RIP Mark.

          I remember Mark having this poster in his office at Ford in a picture he posted. I loved it because, as usual, they had used a red one for promotion. This is a cropped pic of the poster.

              Thanks RustyFrye for posting the pictures for me. Paul, yes, my Merlot we bought from Mark's brother Bill. This was a shock and very sudden and unexpected.
