Another duck hunting friend lost
Some of the old timers on here may remember a time when I was building my own mini mud motors from weed eater engines. Many said it couldn't be done for a variety of reasons that made perfect sense. In the end, we built several of them and they work, and still work quite well. Notice I said the word "we"

While doing research online before building, I came across another person who was trying to do the same thing. We swapped stories and information and became internet buddies. He was way more help to me than I was to him as his hobby was being a machinist for various race teams in his area. John O'Neal was the gentleman's name and he passed away yesterday from the coronavirus.

Over the years John and I swapped hunting stories and stories on life in general. I watched his grandsons promising career in sprint cars take off and headed in the direction of NASCAR. I learned about his family and his career as a firefighter. His political beliefs were in line with mine and we shared what we thought was right and not so right with the Country. He became as good of a friend as others even though I never met him in person.

God rest your soul John, you are sorely missed by many.
