I learned the other day of the passing of my friend, Rich "Rocky" Rockwell from stomach cancer. Rich was an avid flintlock shooter, who attended ML shoots everywhere between Maine and Indiana (Friendship). He was also a helluva nice guy, always willing to help new shooters with advice, equipment, and even a [FL] rifle if needed. I'm sure some of you knew him and are as sad as I am to learn of his untimely death.

Rich started with our club here in AZ about three years ago. He and his wife soon became dear to our hearts here.
Great guy with a crazy dog, and will be missed for sure.
Never knew him when totally healthy, but never heard him complain through it all.
Here's to a good friend!

Amen to that, Dane! (And yes, I remember his crazy dog too! )

Condolences. The loss of any of us diminishes us all.

Thanks, Richard! Our local paper reported the other day that there will be a memorial service for "Rocky" in either Kingston or Stone Ridge, NY sometime in June. Unfortunately, the date, time, and place of that service has yet to be determined.
