Another tear falls ..
Deepest sympathy to family.. Dale Dunn Noel
September 19, 2019
R. C. Lilley was "a Legend in his time" from his early adult life for those of us who grew up in the rural Churchland farm community in the 1950's. When those of us in Boy Scouts reached age 14 and were eligible to become Explorer Scouts and remain in scouting, Churchland Baptist Church sponsored Air Explorer Squadron 235. We loved the attention our sky-blue bright uniforms attracted and the questions people would ask about what the uniforms represented. Our leaders impressed us with the fact that R. C. from a local successful and admired farm family had gone off to college and become a commissioned officer in the Air Force where he was a jet fighter pilot. He was a hero and his example impressed upon us that we needed to think big in considering our life's calling. Our Squadron had a Lycoming radial aircraft engine that we learned to maintain and repair and the church granted us a workroom where we stored it and trained. We also studied basic aerodynamics and aviation history. R. C. was 8 years older than those of us in Squadron 235 in that era more than 65 years ago but we have never forgotten the impact he made on the lives of our group of teens in the quiet rural farm village of Churchland. We were free to dream and inspired also to find our way to serve our country and community.
