Some sad news for the Bomber Command Museum in Nanton this week with the passing of one of their founders, Bob Evans.

Museum Director Karl Kjarsgaard says they'll definitely be paying tribute to Bob.

"We're going to have a full blown funeral, we'll move the Lancaster outside. We're inviting everybody to come to the Bomber Command Museum in Nanton on March 24th. We're going to get started at 2 p.m. We're going to pay tribute as much as we can on March 24th.

Kjarsgaard says the 89 year old Evans was legendary for his ability to find parts for their planes, and the fact he never threw anything away.

"He just never got rid of anything. Maybe that's why the museum is doing as well as it is because Bob said, there's no way that's going in the garbage."
