I am back on the forum from a hiatus. I am very deeply saddened to find Randy has passed. He was the first person to welcome me when i got to this forum.I will miss him sorely. May the great spirit welcome him to the happy hunting grounds where he can forever be with friends.

Havent been a member here long, but read this post and stumbled on a Musketman video on Youtube. Indeed a sad loss when a fellow firearms enthusiast passes. To Musketman.... :hatsoff:

I think you probably saw a different Musketman on Youtube but I'm sure Randy is appreciating your thoughts.

Randy (our Musketman) was among the first members of the Muzzleloading Forum after joining it on Jan 2, 2003.

He did more to make the Muzzleloading Forum what it is today than anyone except for Claude (the owner).
He was always willing to help anyone who asked and had a great sense of humor.

He loved shooting his Brown Bess flintlock and telling stories about it like the time he set a bale of hay ablaze from the flash when it fired.

He is missed by all who knew him.

I just read the long list of posts from so many here on the forum and I share the same feeling as all of you Musketman will be missed. The worst one for me was the one that stated he died of thyroid cancer,it hit me like a ton of bricks for I just had my thyroid biopsede two nights ago. The doc says I have three masses growing on it,I guess I gotta get ready for the fight I'll do my best goodnight folks.

As I recall, he had gone thru surgery and chemo for that and about had it under control.
He did not pass away because of his Thyroid cancer.

His Parkinson's disease was his undoing as he fell from his front porch and hit his head on the concrete.

I know that Randy (Musketman) would be the first to say you can beat your problem. It isn't easy but with a strong will you will win.
