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.
I am verry sorry to hear this sad news.
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.
Rest in Peace, John. A fine photographer and a nice man. I felt so sad to hear this news.
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.........
Sad to hear that news.
A fellow since sxc with a fine gallery. Rest in peace SailinJohn.
I'm very sorry to hear this news. I didn't know John personally but I held high regard for his beautiful images.
He was a very nice man. Its nice of them to allow his photography to remain on RGB. He took many nice photo's.
He took many nice photo's.
Sad to hear this.
Wish his family much strength with this loss
I am a bit late but I don't always check the General Chat part
sad news; RIP SailinJohn
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!
