At the request of the family it is my sad duty to report the passing of our founder, Jeff Cooper. Jeff died peacefully at home this afternoon while being cared for by his wife Janelle and daughter Lindy.

There will be a private internment at Gunsite by invitation, with a public memorial service at the Whittington Center at a date to be announced.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

This happens all too often as of late. The best of the "greatest generation" are passing away at a rate of more than 1500 per day.

This nation owes Col. Cooper a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.

"Thank you, Col. Cooper, and Godspeed. May the Lord bless and keep you, may He hold you at his bosom; may He make his countenance to shine upon you, until the ressurection of the flesh and spirit."

A great man has passed. However, I heard that he was very ill and I'm glad he is no longer suffering. My prayers to his family and friends. He gave his all to many of us. He will be missed. If you happen to be shooting and not doing something right, then you feel someone "looking over your shoulder", it might be Jeff looking down from heaven trying to tell you what you are doing wrong. He wants us to shoot right, be safe and go home at night to our families.
