A death in the family

It is with great saddnes that I post the news of the death of a friend and a fellow angler, Bob York passed away Sunday morning at his sisters home in Oregon.
A complete listing of Mr. Yorks accomplishments in his tree work and his fishing both commercial and sport would fill many volumes and at some point probably will.
I had the pleasure of knowing Bob since the late 60's and had the pleasure of his company over the years in many situations. My wife and I fished with Bob on the Kispiox in the mid 80's it was Demaries introduction to Bob that will always be , to me , the "Gold Standard" (of measure) which tonight when I related to her the news of his passing she said for the second time (this time with tear filled eyes) "Bob York was a prince of a guy".
