Sad news...OldGreyEagle has passed away

Recommended Posts

So sad. He took the time when I was a newbie to send me some good campout ideas in my part of Florida. He was in the area a while back and he wanted to swing by my Troop--we just couldn't hook up. I always wanted to meet him but always thought there was more time. :(

My sympathies to his family in this sudden and sad time. His contributions to this forum and Scouting will be missed.

"That Friend speaks my mind".

I've come to think that , contrary to the usual saying that "it's the company a man keeps" that says alot about him, so much as "It's the company that keeps HIM," that says alot about the man.

 

"he has gone home"

I can't express my shock and grief. He was a great scouter and made this a better place.

 

I know he loved this scouting stuff. He is missed.

Man I will truly miss OGE and his posts. Even when we disagreed he always made me smile. He was a man who dearly loved scouting and will surely be missed by all who knew him. He was a great and very fair moderator here in this forum. OGE I know you are with the great Almighty now enjoying your eternal reward. Blessings and comfort to your family and friends, you will indeed be missed.

My prayers go out for OGE's family and friends. I've only known of him from this forum, but I will miss him and his posts.

As an Eagle the greatest frustration comes from having a body that is bound to this earth, and a spirit that desires to ride the thermals to heights only imagined. I can only imagine the joy John now knows, as he is free of the bonds of this earth, as may soar to the very heavens.

Prayers and positive thoughts on John's behalf and to the entire family. I always looked forward to reading his well thought out responses. He was truly a great guide to all of us who came to know him here. May the Great Master of all Scouts be with us until we meet again. Happy trails, Old Grey Eagle.

I've been away from this forum for a while and decided to poke my head up here...needless to say, this was more then a shock. I never met OGE in person, but we did become friends sharing our love of reenacting via emails and messages. Belated sympathies to the Arno family, your John and our OGE will indeed be missed... en roulant mon ami.

How very sad. I kept meaning to take the time to visit him at the Haggis eating festival held near where he lives in September. I haven't been around much since the site changed and I was unable to post Eamonn
