    I met John more than 10 years ago and will never forget how cordial he was to this yankee and my young son. I lost another old friend 2 days ago after a swarm of bees stung him to death, I am pretty much in shock over these 2 men. Life is so fragile, we should all enjoy each sunrise, and never let the sunset without thanking the Lord for a good day.

    God Bless and Keep You, John Winslow

    Rest in peace brother John. We know John has moved on to a better place. I hope they have a place where he can still enjoy laying CARC. My thought and prayers go out to John's family and closest friends as they try to cope with such an unexpected and great loss. Yes the MV community has lost a great member but a family has lost a dear loved one. Please lets keep John's family in our prayers and in our hearts during this most difficult time. Reflect on his great contributions as a friend and not dwell on his loss as John is not gone, just moved along to the next phase.

    Respectfully,
    Kenny

    It took all day to let this sink in. I have known john for 4 years and seen him once a month and talked with him every week. If it wasn't MV's, it was guns and harleys. Im glad I had that 4 years with him. If you truly knew john he was a honest man and would give you the shirt off his back. There were times when one of my trucks were down and he would let me come pick parts and pay him the next time I seen him. I was just going through photo of when we put the 52's on the 5 ton. Still can't believe it.

    John, thanks for all you did for us. We lost a **** good friend.

    I know next time I hear thunder I will be thinking of you shooting the m2hb 50 ca of the deck.

    I only met John once but I liked him a lot. He was a Mopar guy and had a big block '69 Dart at his place when BFR and I were there.

    Very sorry to hear of this. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.

    Sorry to hear about John's passing. I met him 3 Summers ago when traveling through NC and bought a pickup load of stuff from him. What a top notch guy. As jatonka said enjoy each sunrise. Each breath we have is a blessing from God. Rest in peace brother.
    Regards
    Andy
