Greetings all,

We are the sons of Popgun, affectionately known as Butch to most here in the real world. It is with much sadness we must share with you his sudden passing on the morning of Tuesday, July 31st 2012.

The past few weeks have been difficult as anyone would understand. In dealing with our loss we did not want to forget about all those whom dad touched with his writing, both in life and through his blogs.

Several bloggers in particular were very influential on him. We don’t know how many posts were forwarded to us with the comment, “They said it better than I could.” Special thanks to you Bayou Renaissance Man, View From the Porch, John Lott, and Lawdog.

We were always very proud of him for freely sharing his love of life and country with us (and anyone else within earshot). We wanted to let you know how much he appreciated his readers. We would love to know of any notable posts or conversations with Dad that left an impression on you. Please share in the comments section and we will publish them as we can.

Again, thanks so much for being a part of Popgun’s world. We lost a good one.

Warm Regards,

The Sons of Gun

    My sincere sympathy for your loss. When I first started following blogs your father’s was one of the first I saved as a favorite under my “blogs to read” folder. Most bloggers have links, and his was one I saw enough — and enjoyed enough — to link directly to.

    His writing, and wisdom will be missed.

    I was taking care of my Dad a lot during late July and August following Cardiac surgery and completely missed reading this.

    Your father was a very fine man, the few online conversations with him regarding shooting activities showed grace, intelligence and respect for others.

    I am sorry I never got a chance to meet him. He was one of the good ones.
