I have to mention Debra Carr. She and hubby Mark were charter members of the Southern Stovebolters. She enjoyed photography and her Painted Bunting birds. She had also had found a 37 pickup and was in the mist of putting it back together when she left us. She loved building and working on Harley Davidson motorcycles. She even made her own mold for the gear shift knob and for the knob that screws onto the foot starter. She was also a veteran and was just a great person. As I understand it she had her shop and Mark had his!!
Debra, we miss you.

I think Marks words says it all....
Debra was quite an accomplished woman.

She served ten years in the USAF. She was a skilled helicopter crew chief on CH-3 helicopters out of Keflavik, Iceland (Search and Rescue) during the Cold War, then worked CH-3s/ Cessna O-2s (the prop job in "Bat 21"), and OV-10 Broncos at Shaw AFB, SC.

She was a capable Harley mechanic, rebuilding/repairing numerous customer H-Ds besides her '82 Shovelhead (and my '88 FXR she did as a surprise while I was in Korea). She was also a published bird photographer (Sumter Item, Painted Bunting Observation Team) and dedicate Painted Bunting observer with thousands of documented pics and sightings.

She renovated our houses including plumbing and wiring, and when she was bored in the evenings she crocheted Victorian bedspreads.... out of thread.

Debra greatly enjoyed being a 'Bolter and savored the challenge of working on her '37.

Pic is as she was when we first met. We had 24 good years together.

I'll miss that woman.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I didn't know Debra long, but she seemed to always want to learn and understand new things. We shared an interest in photography and old mechanical things. I know she will be missed 'cause I will do some of it! My thoughts are with you, Mark!
