Ryan Christopher Mouritsen Dead at 33

I received an email from Brennan Callan and here's what it said.

Dear Adam,
Thank you for all of your work on the 2009 EAA Memorial Wall information. Ryan Christopher Mouritsen, 33-years of age at death, was a beloved friend and I miss him desperately to the point it is hard to breath when I think of his absence and my heart aches in ways that seem unnatural. Seeing that you have honored my friend only makes me proud to be a fellow member of EAA.

Adam, as someone who has a loved one on this 2009, I must thank you from the bottom of my broken heart for your efforts to maintain the webpages and honor the special pilots so enumerated on this list.

I loved him so much that I held an Aviation Memorial in Louisville, Kentucky on 28 September 2009 for him with a 1935 Waco biplane and a banner-plane that pulled a banner saying, "Goodbye Ryan Mouritsen [heart shaped symbol]."

At this ceremony, Ryan Mouritsen also posthumously was awarded the "Kentuckiana Cinematography Club (KCC) Lifetime Achievement Award" for his contributions to the motion picture and Television and entertainment industry."

I tried to post my note to your site, but I do not have any of the social network assoications required to post to you. I hope this note makes it this time.

The following aviation poem inspired me to put on the Aviation Memorial for Ryan in the way I did with the banner-plane and the biplane.


Hon. Brennan James Callan, Col.
President/ Founder of Kentuckiana Cinematography Club (KCC)
