Peter F. Girard
His marriage proposal to his wife of more than fifty years, Leslie Girard (née Gehres, daughter of rear admiral Leslie E. Gehres of the USS Franklin), was made aboard a sailplane off the Torrey Pines Gliderport. He advanced through patents arts that affected hang gliders.

His son is living in San Diego: Peter G. Girard, son.
His wife is still living.

RIP, 2011. :(
A full appreciation of his contributions to flexible wing hang gliders is an ongoing project, open to inputs and study by all comers. :idea: :!: :?:
