John Boyer R.I.P.

I regretfully announce that our long time member John Boyer (SailinJohn) has passed away.

His wife, Mary, has requested we continue to host his photo gallery on the site.

He was a good man and has a fine gallery.

John was a fine man and we will miss him.

I didn't know him personally but my thoughts are with his family. It is always sad when someone dies. Hope he passed away peacefully.

Always sad to hear honest mans and women passing away. But nice to see, that apparently John loved his life. Thanks to his wife, his gallery may stay forever.........

He was a very nice man. Its nice of them to allow his photography to remain on RGB. He took many nice photo's.

I am late to this thread also. Such a sad loss. My condolences to John's family and friends.

His shades of Autumn was one of my favourite pictures and his death is particularly poignant for me as I am HIM minus the "O"! ie John Byer. I'm glad his family have asked for his gallery to remain as a nice legacy of his talents!
