What a tragedy, at only 64 I would have wished him a few more decades
on this rock we call home. I'll be in his strewn field later this
year and will be sure to pay proper respects while there.

John was the discoverer of the Franconia strewn field in Mojave, Arizona on October 31, 2002. I know many of you have hunted these hallowed meteorite grounds in the past, and would ask you to pay a debt of respect to this honorable man (perhaps over a Franconia collection piece).
