Thank for teaching me how to shoot. I will always remember you, as a great man with a great sense of humor and a big heart. I will also be there for your youngest, my good friend, if he ever needs a hug or a friend, I will be there.
    Thank you, Dave. I know which Dave this is and your sentiment of kind and accurate words is so appreciated. I'll take that hug next time we meet again. Your good friend, His Youngest

Very sorry to hear this. I only met him a couple of times but he's one of those guys who you always remember. Incredibly welcoming and down to earth. After I met him I could see him in not only John, but Cooper and Mason also. Definitely a man who lived a great life and left a guidebook for his family to do the same. My sincere condolences. Martin

    Martin, On behalf of my brother; John, my nephews; Cooper & Mason, and myself; thank you for your words. He did indeed live a great life. The guidebook he left for us is one we treasure deeply. It's so gratifying that you recognized it and mentioned it because it's the biggest part of his legacy. Merry Christmas and kind regards to you and yours, Andrew
