Black Friday - RIP Jerry

Photo of Jerry taken by WyoThreeper during our FTX last winter.
This Black Friday while others fight with each other to get more 'stuff', I mourn the loss of a friend.

Jerry "Wayne" Weise died today from stage 4 liver cancer. He was just diagnosed last month and was given 7 months to live.

Jerry served honorably in the US Army as a Paratrooper. He later worked as a commercial diver and with NASA assisting astronauts in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory.

He was an Oath Keeper, Threeper, and all around good guy.

He would have made a great guerrilla.

He leaves behind a wife, a daughter, and a son.

RIP Jerry.

    1. Ditto. Stories like this piss me off beyond all reason. No one needs to die from cancer. This isn't the place to go into a tirade, but it's a shame this fine fellow passed away and totally unnecessary.

    In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

  6. I just wanted to say thanks to Ironwill III. As none of you know that great man was my brother. As is comes upon almost a year as we lost him I still look back of all the great times we had and I still wait every now and then for the phone to ring and to hear him on the other end. Jerry I know you were touched and loved by a lot of people and it is so hard to say goodbye.......Bryan
