    Sufferred a great loss today !

    My shooting buddy William Woycik passed today he was 73 !
    He went in the hospital thursday to have two stints put in his leg . Thursday night or friday morning his EKG showed a slight heart attack so the doctors at UVA wanted him to stay in a few more day for tests . They found he had most likely been haveing slight unnoticable heart attacks for the last couple months and that an artery in his heart was 90% blocked . So today they went in to put a stint there and when they touched it he went into arrest and were unable to revive him !
    He is survived by a wife , 2 sons , 2 daughters , 2 exwives , several grandchildren , two step children and a step son in law !

    He was a retired code welder by trade and had dabbled in running a game preserve when he retired in his mid 50's . For the last 10 or so years he had shot skeet atleast 4 times a week . I used to tease him that now his job was as a shooter . Since he liked shooting skeet , trap , silhouettes , schuetzen , BPCR , air rifles , contemporary muzzle loaders and handguns !
    He and I spent many days together shooting over the last 5 years . I wish I had known him earlier in life !

    A picture from last month when he another friend and I shot Sporting Clays .

    Rest in peace old friend you'll surely be missed

    Sorry for your loss, and condolences to the family, it is just sad to lose a long time hunting partner. If you and someone hunt together on a regular basis you have a much stronger band than with a normal friend, because of the stories you share that happened on the trips.

    Best of wishes to all being affected by his passing
