Hi Guys,

I'm James Rand. Forgive me if I have posted this thread in the wrong section.

I have been a Candlepowerforums.com member since 2008 but haven't been too active in recent years. Another local forum member and extreme flashlight enthusiest, John Henry had become a great personal friend through our shared love of all things bright and shiny. A month ago, I visited John at home to talk torches and was informed of John's sudden onset illness.:sick: Within 3 weeks, we had lost a great man to cancer.:sigh:

The last time I spoke with John, he asked if I would sell off his extensive torch collection to raise some much needed funds for his wife Brenda. I will post a link to a sales thread when I have the relevant information compiled. Around 40 minty lights and various accessories will be up for grabs. He had a particular interest in Malkoff torches, drop ins and Surefire legos. I know John would have preferred his much loved torches go to enthusiasts that will fully appreciate them.

Thanks for letting me express my loss.

It's always sad to hear of a member passing away. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of John. :candle: Cancer is a cruel enemy to us all. :sad:

The world is a little dimmer, a sincere pun intended, when we lose an enthusiast such as John. My heartfelt condolences to his Family and Friends here and in OZ. I have had the pleasure of reading some of his posts.

What a shame. Please keep us posted on his lights. It'd be an honor to know it's helping the family out.

I hope he had something I need so I can help out a little. It was nice of you to offer to help liquidate his collection for his wife. I hope she gets the funds she needs. RIP Sparky's Magic.

So sorry to hear of this :candle:

I would add that I've purchased from @jimmy1970 , a few years ago, and was very pleased with my transaction.

Kind of you to do this for your friend. Best of luck with that sale.
