Fred Karst (GACspaceguy) passes along word that Dick Scholtz, the "father of the space shuttle tire," died on March 3 to cancer.
Dick was a 42 year veteran of Michelin and B.F. Goodrich with 36 of those years in aircraft tire design.

Dick was very well known within the aircraft industry as "the" expert in bias aircraft tire design and was perhaps best known as the "Father of the Space Shuttle Tire," having designed and qualified the original B.F. Goodrich fitments for the nose and main gear and later the current Michelin fitments used today.

NASA recognized Scholtz for his work in December 1991 with the presentation of the Silver Snoopy award.
