Man Hit by Airplane

A Texas man was killed in Northern California by the propeller of a crop duster as it was landing last Thursday. Willie Valdez Suarez is deaf and could not hear the small plane approaching the Biggs, California, runway, just north of Sacramento. Suarez was working on the private landing strip as part of a construction crew hired to repair it. The pilot circled the runway before making an approach but Suarez didn't see the plane coming and no one warned him. The FAA is investigating.

I am so sorry to hear about your father I used to date your father back in 1984 we live together for over four years in Illinois. He was one of the smartest man I've ever dated and he most definitely had a hearing problem. He had a ringing in his ears since he was a kid. I would never forget him I'm so sorry to hear this.
