Another Silent Prop...

Post by rick »

Just got word that Whitebear (Scotty Thompson) passed away on April 15th. Not sure of the cause, but was told it was unexpected.

Scotty was a good guy and helped with this site for a lot of years...RIP Scotty.

R.I.P. Scotty, You're sure going to be missed.

I always looked forward to reading his posts. Never got to meet him in person but considered him a good friend.
