It a sad fact of life that none of us are getting any younger and sometimes members of the forum pass on to the shooring range in the sky.
 
When this happens we will remember them in this area.
 
If there is a need to archive a website then please PM me and let me know.

Here is a copy of a post on this forum.  I do not know if this is correct, but I assume so.


I received a nice private message from a forum member. He encouraged me to post the following which is a readers digest version of what happened, what transpired and where Yoshi's collection ended up.

Yoshi passed on Mother's Day from a massive heart attack. He went to the bathroom and never came out. It is my understanding a lot of his Auto Mag's went to family members. In December Yoshi's widow was packed and ready to move. She went to a local gun store and wanted what was left gone. If they would have chosen not to buy the Auto Mag's and barrels she was going to take them to the police and have them destroyed which would have been the real tragedy.

Yoshi did in fact die of a sudden massive heart attack at his house. I originally received word of Yoshi's passing by a gentleman who stumbled across some Auto Mag parts in a gun shop, later finding out they were brought there by Yoshi's wife shortly after he had passed.  Yoshi had bought one of the two custom .45 Stark bbls from me and it was part of the lot. The gentleman bought almost everything Yoshi's wife brought in. I was asked to move two other barrels that were in with the parts, which I did. Then I was offered the remaining parts.  The gentleman I bought the parts from has also passed, losing his long bout to prostate cancer. I knew he was fighting cancer at that time and he looked very grey. I'm not sure if this helps but thought I'd add to the record. For sure Yoshi was a good man. LOL
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
