This is a sad day. We lost Chunk on October 28, 2009. He was 60 years old. I'll have some more pictures to post after we get unpacked in Yuma. Right now, I just can't say any more, Chunk was a very close friend. If anyone wants to send me some personal thoughts about Chunk, please send them and I'll get them posted here. will be my address starting next week. Click on any picture to make it larger.

Here's the last pic I took of Chunk. I remember him at KSL, helping me learn to compose my pictures more artistically. A real renaissance man - photography, painting, jewelry.... God Speed my friend..... (from Stewey) I think this was at Interlocken 2009

2008 in Holbrook, AZ., at Jack's Body Shop. Chunk volunteered to haul this trailer that I was delivering to ES for Wildrose and Ron. There was bad weather ahead, he thought I wouldn't be safe pulling it.

Chunk is pointing out some good routes to our Kiwi friend Don Markel.

The Foree back yard, Jack is cooking up some steaks, Chunk and Don are planning.

Wikiup, AZ. Chunk and I each had a sandwich. We're about to share that blackberry cobbler. It was the last piece, so we shared.

Being a gold miner and photographer, Chunk leaped down under the bridge to look for flowers and gold.
