    lost another friend today

    well, just got a call
    a long time friend of mine passed away
    he was 90 yrs old, he drank, smoked cigars, chewed tabbaco, all his life,
    was never sick a day in his life till the past few months, and even then he was active, he was plowing a field on a tractor last summer helping me do a food plot! LOL
    he worked till he was 88 yrs old, cause he liked to work, was a game warden for 30 yrs, , then a engineer for 20, and then past 20+ yrs a survery, cause he liked to do that work! and did a lot fof it or free to people he knew!
    just to stay busy!

    great guy, and agreat hunterand trapper, since he was 8 yrs old till his late 80's when he decided ,
    he just didn't want to do it no more!
    and then today, he told his wife he couldn't breath, and like that he was gone!
    he passed away at 4 pm today!
    been a hard yr for me, lost a bunch of friends /family so far this yr

    Sure hate to hear the news. Guys like him are one of a kind, a different breed. Not many these days that can compare. Sorry for the loss to you and his family.
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    thanks
    and I agree, don't find a lot of people anymore with the same set of rule these old one's live by
    all hard work, and honest, never want anything they didn't earn
    its a new world any more
    far too many folks today, I think don't know what hard work is, or having the sacrifices to appreciate all they have
    way too much is taken for gratned, or worse, felt its owe'd to them in todays world
    not saying there isn't still good folks about
    just times and value's have sure changed for most if you ask me!

    Sorry to hear stan. Sounds like one hell of a man and friend.

    Sorry to hear that Stan. I'm sure you will miss him.
    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.

    At least he made it to 90. All the years with my ass stuck to a Harley seat I met a lot of good friends who never made it past their 40's. They went out the way the they wanted, sounds like he did too. Sorry for your loss.
