Passing of Gurnie

Thread starter #1
According to Facebook our dear friend Gurn has been called home. I haven’t spoke to him in a while, I am saddened to hear of the news. He was a regular on the forum until he got sick for those that did not know him.
 
Yep. That was a phone call I did not like. Gurnie was a kind, generous, happy man. I am lucky to call him one of my friends. When I first talked to him I invited him down to go pig hunting with me- I never figured him to show up all the way from Michigan. He did though, and I got to meet that “ ole long haired no count yankee”. We shared some really good times chasing pigs around and shooting pine cones. He was never too busy to talk on the phone and he loved his Bowhunting- like we all do. Everybody who met him liked him immediately. I don’t know that I’ve ever met a better person. Cancer took him too quickly, like it does a lot of folks. RIP ole buddy, I’ll miss talking to you. I’ll see you one of these days.

It was a real honor to meet Gurnie when he came down to hunt with you. He will be missed.
 
I am sorry to hear that. I corresponded with him several times and sent him a Asbell type quiver I made. He really seemed to like it.

I like guns too and recently joined the Marlin Forum and learned Gurnie's brother started that forum and Gurn was a big part of it too.

Good man, and his passing is sad. He sure had a big southern fan base. One of my favorite posts he made, was about something Dendy said when Gurn came down to hunt hogs; "Ya'll holler in the woods?" Godspeed Gurn.
 
Never got to meet Gurnie but I enjoyed his posts. I "friended" him on facebook and enjoyed his posts and pictures there. I would like to think his passing was peaceful but from what I've seen in other cancer patients the last few months of his life were probably pretty tough.
 
Hate hearing this. Always enjoyed reading his hunting adventures and reading his post. Losing too many good folks on here of late.
