    Hardcast416taylor (Bob Smoke) passed away

    I sadly report that Bob Smoke (AKA Hardcast416taylor) passed away last night after a several month battle with cancer. He will be missed but is free of pain and suffering now. Rest in peace my friend.

    Sad that he's gone but glad he's no longer suffering, I know the pain was getting worse. I'll be praying for Ruth and the rest of the family.

    Bob was a good guy.

    God rest his soul. Prayers sent for his family. Always polite and straight up in his posts; he will be missed. Whenever I think of the .416 Taylor, I think of Bob- NOT Robert Chatfield Taylor. And will continue to do so.

    Free from pain and suffering. Godspeed, Bob Smoke!!! Condolences to his family.
    I firmly believe that you should only get treated by how you act, not by who or what you are!!

    Sad news I had talked to him in the past here and I am sure we talked in person when I was in Columbiaville Sportsman's club before I retired and moved north .
    Prayers for him and his family two family members of mine passed from cancer this year .
    When I think back on all the **** I learned in high school it's a wonder I can think at all ! And then my lack of education hasn't hurt me none I can read the writing on the wall.

    Robert "416Hardcast Taylor" has left us for a better place

    Make that Hardcast416Taylor

    I asked for prayers a number of times for Robert as he was fighting cancer. I didn't say why at the time as he didn't give me the go ahead but did say asking on a general basis was ok by him. He appears to have lost his fight as I sent a pm a little while ago, didn't hear back and now see his signature has changed.
    Robert helped me out on a number of occasions over the last several years with excellent insight, tips and guidance on a number of shooting topics especially my new to me 416 Ruger. He always pm'd me back promptly with advice I'll be hard pressed to replace

    If you have time please remember him with a prayer.
    I am become death. The destroyer of worlds

    We all do our duty when there is not cost to it, honor comes easier then. Sooner or later there comes a day in every man's life when it is not so easy, a day when he must choose and live with it for the rest of his days.
