Only a Hobo, But One More Is Gone...

Steve Jones wasn't a hobo, but his emaciated and grizzled appearance would lead one to assume he was.  Steve and I started the Cosmic Aeroplane back in 1967.  After a few years, I would move on to other things, but Steve kept the shop open and was certainly the soul of the Cosmic.  Eventually new partners and investments would make the shop successful, at least until it's ultimate downfall.


I sort of lost track of Steve's activities after the Cosmic.  In the last year, however, I was able to help him with transportation from a local hospital.  He was facing some serious medical issues which added to his gaunt appearance.  In December, these issues finally defeated him.

Anyway, another friend now gone.  Not many of the old crew left.  Long Live the Cosmic!

My good Rev. so sorry I didn't have a chance to speak to you while I was putting together the article I did for CATALYST in 2014, sort of lost track of you and Setzer too. Anyway, I'll always be in your debt! Jim Taylor jambeau@hargray.com
