    Unfortunately, I have some sad news to put on here today. Kansas shooter John Kasberger lost his battle with cancer. I believe he died on Monday. The visitation is on Wed. night in Lawrence Kansas. That is the only detail I have at this time.

    John always wore a hat that said "older than dirt". I never saw John that he didn't have a smile on his face. Always a positive attitude until the end of his days. We were truly blessed to know John. There are very few people that have the great attitude he had every day.

    He leaves his wife Nancy, a great lady as well, and his daughter and son-in-law. Many times he shot with his son-in-law, Ray. I don't know his last name.

    John will be missed by all who knew him.

    Our prayers are with Nancy and their family.

    Thanks for posting Lorna.

    I didn't know John well, only to shoot with him on occasion.

    But you're right, always a smile on his face, and a positive attitude. We'd all do well to emulate that.

    Sincere condolences to John's family.

    Even though everyone who was familer with John and Nancy knew this day was coming this is really sad news.John always had a smile on his face and over the years told me some of the funniest jokes I ever heard.I have shot on dozens of squads with John.I know John is in a better place now ,but I sit at this computer with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes.Rest in peace my friend...John Wiegand.

    I too sit here with a heavy heart reading of this news. John was one extremely nice person. Seems he has been around as many years as I in this game we play. But then I guess, "he was older than dirt".

    A Kansas Hall of Fame inductee, John was a heck of a shooter in his day. I think he was wearing his famous "older than dirt" cap when I first met him in the very early 80's. He was definatley a character and had a sense of humor large enough for several people. A friend to very many - he will be missed.
