Wow that sucks. I'm sorry to hear him pass. I was just in Ocala this past weekend and right down the road from there! I wish I knew he was living there or I'd have stopped to say hello.

We lost a great guy in the SQ community.

Saw this on FB and needed to come back here to offer my condolences.  Dude was a mainstay in the SQ community since before I ever got into it like 14 years ago.
