Letter: Odegaard will be in our heartsBob Odegaard was a friend. That’s the best way to describe him. No, we didn’t talk very often, but we always nodded to one another as we passed at a large aviation gathering.
Bob will be remembered as the combination of the “Orville and Wilbur Wright of North Dakota,” always seeking new and better ways to do things, and never satisfied until it was perfect.
He is gone from our mortal midst but never from our hearts in immortality.
Brekken is chairman, North Dakota Aviation Council.
