Sad news about xxxSKS aka Joe
« on: November 03, 2016, 03:01:44 PM »
Joe is no longer involved with sks's, but I have all his data and information. I'll check it out when I'm home later.


Mod note:  This topic was split off of another post where a member mentioned getting into contact with xxxSKS.  Recently, Joe had decided to get out of the SKS world and had turned over his research and data to Power Surge.  Regardless of whether he was sick or a sudden accident/illness occurred, we will miss his knowledge, camaraderie, and quick wit greatly here at SKS-Files. -RM

Just to clarify my previous statement, xxxsksjoe has gotten out of anything SKS related (to my knowledge). His absence does not have to do with our SKS-files site (again, to my knowledge). Joe sent me a surprise package one day with some commercial stuff in it, along with a USB drive with all his SKS data and note saying he was done. He has passed the commercial torch over to me from what I can tell. He has not responded to any attempts of contact since then.

1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

The FB page for Joe Hersey says he passed away last month. Doesn't give a cause. I'm sorry if I'm mistaken.

Like, for the FB page that was actually his page? Or you just found a page with his same name?

Pretty sure it is him. I saw a comment from Woodwizard in his FB group.

He just fell off the grid...    Need to confirm.   He never said anything to anyone if so.

Dang, that's a kick in the gut  :(


Same one Jim?  http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/azcentral/obituary.aspx?pid=182210856

Dates match up with his last login here as well as his personal page on facebook https://www.facebook.com/fastjavlin (which matches his fastjavlin ID he used in his email)



Very sad if true.  :( :(

I'm letting you all know....I shared his passing over "there". He was respected by many....even if some couldn't see him for the amazing walking data bank that he was..... :(

 I too am saddened to hear this.. With his passing, not only did his family loose him, the collecting community as a whole lost a, what I would deem as a "great". If anyone gets deemed as a "Legend", he, Joe, should be the first star on the wall. The man passed his legacy on to another member which is pretty much unheard of these days. Lets remember him for who he was, his humor and the wonderful info and insite he brought to the table, and help keep his Commercial legacy alive with it's new care taker.
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

Never rub another man's rhubarb!!!
