Hadn't heard of it but sorry to hear of his passing.
He left a legacy through his books, personal wisdom and Gunsite academy.

Godspeed Colonel, you'll be missed..
I was tho I guess bracing for this - bless the man for all he gave so many and may he rest in peace and be remembered for the legend he became.
