Dick Fortenberry

Dick Fortenberry

Well I, Richard "Dick" Terrell Fortenberry, finally died at age 79, but not before God gave me a wonderful and exciting life. I always said that if I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself, but there was a time I didn't plan on living past 35 years old. I was born Richard Terrell Fortenberry to Richard Franklin and Mildred Haney Fortenberry on June 4, 1938 in Coleman, Texas. My mother was killed in a car accident when I was two years old and I was given to my Grandparents, Baxter and Jesse Fortenberry to raise.

n 1956, I joined the Army and went to paratrooper school with the 77th Special Forces Group at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. After completing my individual and unit training I attended the parachute riggers school in Ft. Lee, Virginia. In 1958, "Skydiving" was approved as a sport in the military.

I made my first free-fall on November 8, 1958 on Sicily Drop Zone. I rapidly excelled in the sport and when the STRAC Parachute Team (later to become the "GOLDEN KNIGHTS") was formed, I was one of the original seven members. During my assignment on the Team I became the first to ever win three consecutive National Championships, 1961, 1962, and 1963, and help establish 24 world accuracy records. I was on the United States Parachute Team from 1960 through 1964, and was team Captain from '61 through '64.

In 1960, I won the "overall" silver medal in Sofia, Bulgeria, and was the first to ever make a "dead center" landing on the target. In 1962, I won Bronze at Orange, Mass. And in 1964 I won that illusive Gold Medal as Overall World Champion, in Leiutkirch, West Germany. In 1975, I was awarded the "Leonardo da Vinci Diploma" by the Federation of Aeronautics International. This is the highest award in the world for parachuting. For my tour of duty on the Golden Knights, I was awarded the Legion of Merit. In 2011, I authored a book titled "NO ETA", The Pioneering Days of Skydiving.

Accomplishing all I could in parachuting, I entered the Army's helicopter flight school graduating 2nd in my class and spent the next fifteen months as a gunship pilot in Viet Nam. During that period, I was awarded the Bronze Star and 26 air medals, two of which, were for valor.

In 2016 I was inducted into the National Skydiving Hall of Fame for my contributions to the sport. I was also inducted into the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame this year.

I am survived by my beautiful wife of 40 years, Linda; our children, twin daughters, Jennifer Fortenberry and Amanda Clary, Theresa Creber, Diana Thomasson and Chanc; nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held in December at the Golden Knight Reunion in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Remembrances: Golden Knights Alumni Association - Post Office Box 42401, Fayetteville, North Carolina 28309-2401.

Bob Peterson Bob Peterson passed away on February 9, 2016 after a short illness. Bob served on the Team for most of the period between 1966-1977. Here is Bob's obituary. It includes information about his celebration of life on April 9, 2016.

Robert Peterson of Clearlake Oaks, California passed away February 9, 2016 at their winter getaway in Arizona. Bob was born in Camden New Jersey on December 5, 1938.

He spent a large part of his life serving his country. Part of the 22 years he spent in the Army was spent in Vietnam. It was in the Army that he fell in love with parachuting and competed throughout the world as a member of the Golden Knights Parachute Team.

Bob was a pastor for the Universal Life Church. After retiring from the Army he remained active in the community as a member of the Loyal Order of the Moose for over 25 years. While in the MOOSE he served as the governor and as a Legionnaire. Bob was also a member of the Veteran of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.

Bob loved to travel and enjoyed their winter getaway in Arizona. Just as the weather would start to chill in California he would become a snow bird and head to Arizona.

Bob is survived by his wife June, six children, nine grandchildren and one great-grand daughter.

The Life of Steve Scott
Steve Scott was born October 22, 1939 in Burlington, Vermont. On Monday, July 13, 2015, Steve went to his Heavenly Home surrounded by his family and friends.
Steve was a Vietnam Veteran and Golden Knight. He also worked and retired from Hercules Steel in Fayetteville, North Carolina. His routine after retirement was to wake Kathy Scott, his wife of 32 years, up for work with a cup of hot coffee and take care of his beloved pets.
Steve loved his children: Susan (Scott) Zappe, Yvonne (Scott) Tucker, Stewart Scott, Sean Scott, Jamie Lawson, Angie Evans. And his many grandchildren.
In his life, Steve enjoyed waterskiing, piloting his airplane, skydiving, scuba diving, muscle cars and spending time with his wife Kathy. He enjoyed yard work and building things, especially wooden decks. In his later years Steve enjoyed supervising his son-in-law, Ralf, as he built the decks.
Steve enjoyed and loved his many pets dearly, especially his blue and gold Macaw named Hemi.
So for now it's not goodbye, but see you later.

January 2013 The Big Picture 1961 Re-Discovered

Howard Sanborn

CPT James Perry introducing an
episode of
"The Big Picture"
which featured the recently-formed
United States Army Parachute Team

An early movie about the use of parachuting in the military, and the development of the USAPT
has recently resurfaced.

Produced by the US Army, circa 1961, this episode of "The Big Picture" is a real treasure.
It features the first commander of the USAPT, CPT James Perry, and footage of many of
