I was going to wait on this a few days, but under the circumstances, I decided to post this up now. Wes, AKA Hondo passed away late Saturday night. He was like a brother and this one hits pretty hard.
I had a nice talk with his sister yesterday about everything. He was one tough guy and he hung in there for several months longer than the doctor's claimed was possible.

We shared a lot of shooting, beer's ATV rides, and a love of the Chiefs over the years. He was the kind of guy that if he liked you, he would give you the shirt off his back. (In this case literally, I learned he left me all his Chiefs gear) Hondo was the kind of guy to put everyone else first.

I'll have to double check the area for snow level. I'd like to take one last wheeling trip up Bridger Creek this year, dodge the grizzly's that are out trying to get their last meal and stash a bottle of Pendleton at a place on top of the mountain where we used to stop and just BS. I will hoist a shot to the heavens, say a few words and toast him, every time I head up there.

I'll post more stories along with some pictures in the the thread as it moves along.

RIP my brother, you were one of a kind and you will be deeply missed.

Shit. I had no idea. Was it cancer?

I met Hondo at one of the bashes, and we became friends, kept in touch on Facebook. Dude was legit a man. This is pretty shocking.

Wes was 100% solid. RIP Hondo.

Stage 4 stomach cancer, apparently.

RIP Hondo, and condolences to all who knew him well.
I thought about this the other day..I signed up here when I was 22, now I'm 41, that's crazy.

Bwana,

Your guys stories on this board sure reminded me of home. And Hondo is like many Montanans, just real. I can't explain the people there but it makes a man better. He seemed like a good one.

Prayers to rockymtnchief's family and thoughts to you Bwana.

Do us a favor and whenever you're up on the mountain toasting him do one for you and him and then one for the rest of us.

RIP RMC. Seems Chiefs Planet is taking a lot of hits. At least our comrades got to see us hoist the Lombardi and two Lamar Hunt trophy's. God bless their families.
