Prayers to his family and loved ones, it's difficult losing someone.
Any day without learning is a day of backing up.

Very sad news, John really supported ROCS and me personally in my position as Treasurer.
He was a good friend. I sure will miss him.

Joan and I will say a prayer for John and his family. Sorry to hear of his passing.
Some people sit on $.05 of knowledge like it is the treasure of Egypt. I will teach anyone $.10 worth just to prove a point...

I never know what to say when things like this happen but I hope that he's in a better place and will keep his family in my thoughts and prayers. It's especially sad to lose a founding member with an obvious passion similar to many of our own.

Prayers all around for the family. John didn't go half way with his collection or what he was looking for, he went all out. He will be missed.

John was always willing to help educate folks about Rugers. Truly a great guy. He will be missed. His family has my prayers & sincerest condolences.
