John Novekse involved in fatal car crash... :(

John Noveske was in a car crash and died according to Oregon State Police... ... crash.html

Fatal Traffic Crash - Highway 260 west of Grants Pass - 01/05/13
Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into Friday night's single vehicle fatal traffic crash along Highway 260 (Lower River Road) west of Grants Pass that resulted in the death of a Grants Pass man.

According to Sergeant Tyler Lee, on January 4, 2013 at approximately 9:13 p.m., a 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser driven by JOHN NOVESKE, age 36, from Grants Pass, was westbound on Highway 260 near El Camino Way. As the vehicle negotiated a right curve, it traveled across the oncoming lane onto the dirt highway shoulder until it struck two large boulders. The vehicle rolled and NOVESKE was ejected.

NOVESKE, who is the owner of a local rifle manufacturing company, was not using safety restraints and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

OSP troopers from the Grants Pass and Central Point offices are continuing the investigation. Trooper Ryan Neuenschwander is the lead investigator.

OSP was assisted at the scene by Rural Metro Fire Department, ODOT and AMR ambulance. No photographs for release.
My thoughts and prayers are sent out to his family and friends and the awesome folks at Noveske.

Very sad and I'm just stunned... :(

Thoughts & Prayers for sure. Sad day. ... n-noveske/

I wasn't planning on purchasing anything from Noveske in the near future, but I'm going to reconsider this now. Great company, I'm just not a big AR guy. Noveske, LLC. will be announcing a "cause" to donate to in the coming days ahead. His reputation to constantly strive for perfection and innovation will surely be missed within the industry.

I never heard bad word said about him.
The moments I was censored was the moment that I won. That's twice, now.Thanks jwbaker, et al, for my victories.
