Flagstaff, AZ – Friday, January 23rd, two friends from Flagstaff died when their small plane crashed.
Frank Protiva and Tom Moody were engineers, pilots, and river runners. I talked to some of their many friends for this remembrance.
Guillermo Cortes, an engineer and Vice President at Frank Protiva's engineering firm, Shephard-Wesnitzer, met him about 12 years ago.
"We became friends right away," Cortes said. "He welcomed anybody in right away."
