Just saw on Facebook my friend Jolly Rodger is gone

Postby machinestles » Thu Mar 22, 2018 11:14 pm

I met him when I bought parts from him for my first airboat. He befriended me and thought me how to drive it. To me he personified what all good men should be. True airboater. I will miss him dearly.
Prayers for him and those he leaves behind.

Dang, I hate to hear that.

It was always a good time when he was around at our get togethers a few years back.

Another Silent Prop...RIP Jolly Roger.

Jolly Roger and his Karaoke machine, drinking Michelob Ultra...what a great time. He could sure sing and play that guitar. Last saw him at Dustys celebration of life.
Rest easy Roger.

Yeah Glades Cat,
Roger had a great voice.
Every time I seen him fire up his karaoke machine, seems it was this song was what he would sing first off...
One more time for Jolly Roger

This is indeed sad news. He was one the most enjoyable people to be around that I ever met.
Prayers sent for all involved. Slide Easy, My Friend.
