Midwest Flyer Magazine contributing editor, Ed Leineweber, wrote the following article about Bill Rewey that was published in the June/July 2011 issue. Not long after this article was published, Bill Rewey was inducted into the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame, and most recently, he was finishing a Zenith 750 Cruzer project and helping a group of fellow EAA members build a Pietenpol. His son, Chris, said that his dad’s only regret in his 91 years of life was not having learned to play the bagpipes. Condolences may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
