I had originally planned for Fitch to be our guest of honor at the Autumn Foliage Festival dinner at the Falls Village Inn but his health had been failing rapidly and as it turned out he passed away a few days after the event. He was a fascinating speaker and had known a huge number of prominent people from all walks of life ranging from the obvious such as race drivers Stirling Moss, Phil Hill and Juan Fangio but he had also know various Kennedy's including Rose and Jack, Orville Wright, Eva Peron and the The Duke and Duchess of Windsor and many others.
