Passing of WinchesterBob



Log in to see fewer ads
My friend SageRat22 emailed me that WinchesterBob (Bob Carter) died this morning. I think he was 67 or so. Bob was a very helpful and knowledgeable Winchester, Kimber and early Cooper collector and expert. He has given me hours of advice and friendship over the years. I will miss him and this forum will also miss his insight on many matters Winchester. Rest in Peace Bob!

I am very sorry to hear that and sorry for your (and our) loss.

Thanks for letting us know, many times a well known poster just stops posting and we don't know what happened to them.

Bob, you will be missed!

Ouch, 67 is too young to go. Sorry to hear of Bob's passing, folks like him make RFC a great place. Prayers of comfort for Bob's family and friends.

Wow, that's quite a shock. I had spoken with Bob a number of times regarding a couple of custom 52s he owned. A wealth of knowledge and nice guy that will be sorely missed.

RIP

TBR

I always found him to be knowledgeable and willing to share that knowledge. A fine gentleman who will be missed on RFC.

I enjoyed

reading his posts and responses. He was always helpful and very respectful of those with less knowledge than he had. Sorry to hear about his untimely passing. --Greg

I agree Greg. I have tried to follow 52 threads and posts over the last few years and Bobs posts, I looked forward to reading as others. Yes he will be missed by all here. Thanks Vert for letting us know.
