I knew him in the mid 1990's in B.C, back then he had 10,000+ hours and was doing heli-logging out of Squamish. His name was Wade, for the life of me I can't recall his last name...real nice guy and always had some corny magic tricks he would be eager to show you (on the ground)...
Long shot i know, but figured this would be a good of place as any to look.
TIA

Not sure who he was flying for, maybe Elaho Logging, I am pretty sure he was flying a Sikorski...at the time, they had actually bought it from Trump and converted into a logging machine. I'm not sure if he flew that one, but whatever company it was that made that purchase, he flew for them. Apologies for bring vague but that's all I can remember.

That machine was owned by Coulson in Port Alberni in the early nineties .

I you give facebook a try with that name, a couple of helicopter pilots will show up, you might be able to recognize him.
I simply put Wade in the search box and 2 heli guys showed up.
I do remember that Trump 61 story.

I sat next to Wade as a co pilot with Blacktusk Helicopters he was flying the 214 like a champion, one of the best long line pilots and a great person.
