    Mr. Brian Patrick Lyttle
    November 1, 1943 - February 10, 2016

    Got to meet Brian a couple of times at the Ashokan Seminar, what a great maker and funny guy. If you watch real close in the movie "The Edge" when the plane lands at the lake, he had a cameo, all bundled up in fur and fur hat helping to dock the plane. He made the folder that was used in the movie.

    Sadly, we lost John Bartlow in June this year.

    He was from Wyoming and had some of the cleanest hunters I've ever encountered. Such a warm handshake and a big broad mustached smile. I miss him.

    The list seems to read Sonnerville, but this should be Sonneville, W. J. Sonneville. He died in 1987.
