    One of our old time members has passed


    Yesterday we learned that Bill Witt (aka Antman) has passed while camping with his beloved wife Diane. Bill and Diane have been great friends to Kathy and me and partially responsible for us moving to Overgaard only a couple blocks from them. Bill has been a member of the VJC from it's inception in 2003, one of the original members of the HCR and a wheeler a lot longer than that. He was a stand-up guy who had respect for everything, a better friend you could not ask for and we will miss him.

    Bill was also active in Ham radio and the shooting world so anyone who might know him on other forums please post this for his friends there.

    I have started a Memorial Fund to help out during this trying time. If you would like to contribute just send your donation to my pay pal account under "friends and family" at rjentaz@live.com or send a check or money order to Richard J Evans 3120 West Carefree Highway, Suite 1, Mailbox #743, Phoenix, AZ 85086

    This fund will be open for three weeks

    Thank you

    Rich

    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

    Shocking to read this, Rich. He was very much a standup, guy. I'll work a little PayPal magic, when I get home from LA. Thanks for sharing, but I wish it was happier news.

    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    That's unfortunate. Being new I don't know him, but never good to see. My condolences to those of you who knew him and his family.

    My deepest condolences to all who feel this loss. I don't think I ever had the pleasure to meet him but in the 10 years I've been on this forum, just from reading his posts, I developed a deep respect for him. He definitely was one of the good and wise ones here. He will be missed.
