John Drum passed away.
« on: October 25, 2018, 05:24:32 PM »
I just heard that John Drum the Man who bought our Rooster Ridge property just passed away from a tree cutting accident on his property. His wife Dana survives. I have no further information as this was just posted. John was a great Man and will be missed. We almost bought his house in FL but someone came up with the money before we could qualify. I will post a follow up if I get anymore information.
John and his Wife attended the last Gold Festival we had on the property.

Update, John was cutting down a dead tree on his property and it fell on him. I know many did not know John but he was a former Police Officer in Florida and an avid biker. A gentle giant. He loved owning Jimmy's Godwin's property (our former GPAA lease). He opened the lower portion and cabin to camper and cabin rental.

Nothing has been posted yet about arrangements.
Not sure if it will be private yet. Most of his Friends are in FL.

I kinda felt that they would have the services in FL where he worked and lived most of his life.
