On Tuesday June 23 2015, Bob Short from Canada left the following message for Allen Stapley:
"I met 97 year old, Mel Hymers, a Royal Canadian Air Force veteran, at the Hamilton Warplane Heritage Museum. Mel is surprisingly sharp for his age and provided me with the name of his old friend, Al Stapley, of Ottawa and Deep River, Ontario. This Al Stapley worked on Canada's first satellite, Alouette I. And I think served with Mel in the RCAF. I told Mel I would try to track this Al Stapley down for him. Are you possibly a descendant, Allen? thanks, BobBob."
