Awshucks is No More

Post by vixenmaster » Sat Aug 08, 2015 6:18 am

My great best friend has been killed in an motor accident yesterday. With a aching heart i tell the Forum. When i get more info i will post. No one knowed how much i loved my best friend!

I have the followin update on Dan. He was leavin the Eagle's Nest Club after bein there fer the spagetti supper. As he pulled out onto the hiway he was hit on his Bike. The person said they didn't see him until they made contact. Dan was Airlifted to Ft. Smith but didn't make it to the Hospital. He was broken badly legs, arms, internally. Oh God how terrible this was fer him. The pain he must have endured, i am sorry i am tryin to write this with tears running down my face. I am goin to miss him lots. We fished, we hunted,we shot 3-D Shoots together. I need to sit n rest my mind from this fer awhile :(

Wow ! Really hate to hear this , Very Generous man ! Sent me a G5 ASD and a fletching stripper free of charge a few weeks ago and wouldn't let me pay him a penny . I'll be praying for his family , thanks Mike for letting us know .

Wow, very sad news for sure. My condolences to all his family and friends. I am glad to have met him a few years ago at Boo Fest, he spent a lot of time with me as a x-bow neubie at the time to help me mount and site in a scope on my new bow. Will think of him every time I see the colour pank.

He will be greatly missed for sure. RIP Dan

Not what I wanted to wake up to.
Dan was such such a help to me in my early years, he and Boo took me under their wings on a different site and made sure I had all the knowledge I needed.
Enormous and I took a drive from Canada to Dans house to hunt with him and Vixenmaster, it was an amazing trip.
Not looking forward to sharing this news with my son when he gets up, he idolized Dan, has a gift from him from many years ago hanging above his bed with a note from Dan.
This absolutely sucks.

Edit* Mike, sorry for the loss of your dear friend, the world just lost a human encyclopedia. There were very few things Dan didn't know, the value of your friendship being one of them.

Oh Mike, I'm just sick! So sorry to hear about Dan. I know yall were close and this is such a shock. He was a good friend to me over the years. He was always there to help, and lend a hand. If you find out anything about a service and could post it I would appreciate it. So sad.

Dan was a very close friend. I loved him like an older brother. He found God again just recently so I know he's happy where he is. He was a very good man and the world is a lesser place without him.

Praying for his family and friends. Great friends are hard to find and even harder to lose, cancer took all my hunting and fishing buddys. My heart felt sympathy goes out to all his family and friends.
