    John and Betty attended shoots in Alberta, Montana and Arizona. He was well like and respected. A lifelong farmer, with sons Vance and Dale, he built a regulation 1 trap layout in his farmyard and would hold fun shoots there. He was a welcoming face when I first started shooting trap in 1977 and I'll miss him. All of us younger shooter called him "Dad". That says it all.

    I will post information regarding his memorial service when it becomes available.

    My sincere condolences to Betty and Vance and Dale. John will truly be missed. His name is in the Alberta record book in many places. I especially remember his 100 straight at an advanced age at the Flathead Valley Clay Target Club in Kalispell Montana.
