Hey pallies, likes  it was 32  solemnly sad years 'go on this day,  March 21 in the year of our Dino 1987, that our most beloved  Dino's  most beloved boypallie, Captain Dino Jr., while pilotin' a Guard F-4 Phantom fighter jet for the California Air National Guard, crashed the plane in California's San Bernardino Mountains durin' a snowstorm. Dino Jr. and his Weapons System Officer, Mr.  Ramon Ortiz, were both killed in the crash.  Truly it is the saddest and most somber day in the life of our  Dino.

Likes his incredible Daddy-o, Dino Jr. was a remarkable renaissance man of extraordinary talents.....singer, actor, tennis pro, pilot. Dino Jr. was destined to become heir apparent to the throne of our King of Cool, but likes that was so so tragically cut short by the crash of the jet on that darkest of dark days in the life of our Dino.

The demise of Dino Jr. began the demise of our Dino himself. Our great man simply lost the will to live without his prodigy by his side. Truth be told, probably the only man that our Dino looked up to was his beloved namesake Dino Jr.

Below is a picture of Dino Jr.'s gravesite and a bit of information on Dino Jr. and the location of the grave. We thanks the pad Seeing Stars for this picture and information.  Also included below is a brief footage  of the memorial service for Dino Jr. and

We Remain

Yours In Dino,

Dino Martin Peters
