Brad Libby, the proprietor of Pen-Bay Decals died on August 8, 2007, following a long illness. He was 54 years old.
Brad was well-known to members of the 1/87 Vehicle Club, both as an active participant and a valued supplier to our hobby. His company was known for nice short-run and custom decals, most of which were not available elsewhere. A tour through our Galleries will reveal a host of models wearing decals Brad supplied. There is no word as to whether anyone will pick up Brad's products and continue the line.
Our sincere condolences go out to Brad's family and friends. In lieu of flowers, Brad, a long-time volunteer firefighter, requested before his death that those wishing to remember him make a memorial donation to the Winterport Fire and Rescue, P.O. Box 724, Winterport, ME 04496.
Thanks to George Barrett of Sheepscot Models for providing the information and link. [posted 08/16/2007]
