INDUSTRY LEADERS ATTEND SERVICES FOR RICH HOLLEY
TARPON SPRINGS, FL - (Posted March 11) Some two dozen industry leaders from AMOA and AAMA joined friends and family at funeral and burial services for AMOA's late president Rich Holley on Friday, March 7. The popular operator was killed in a plane crash off the Florida coast one week earlier. Sources said early investigation pointed to a medical condition as a possible cause of the crash; however, mechanical failure is also being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board. The NTSB's official report is not expected for many months. Holley, age 58, was owner of Southeast Game Brokers (Tampa). In memory of the association's first president to die in office, AMOA is now accepting donations for a newly created Rich Holley Music Scholarship Program. Full details will be reported in due course.
