    Loss of a Great Competitor RON HOEHN

    It is with heavy heart and sadness that I bring you all some very sad news. The Bench Rest community has lost another great member.
    Ron Hoehn passed away suddenly yesterday (Monday May 29th) after having a bad turn in the last couple of days. He was just at the range last week and we were discussing his comeback.
    He was feeling good and ready to win a few bets and maybe take a watch or two. I believe he saw an opening on bench 31 at the greatest Bench Rest Range of all and took his place on the firing line.

    I believe him to be sitting at bench 31 with a light breeze from left to right finishing a teen agg at 200 yards thinking of who else he can bet a dollar with.

    Though we had many arguments over the years and we rarely saw eye to eye, Ron was my mentor and dear friend and will be greatly missed here at the
    St. Louis Bench Rest Rifle Club that he helped build and Run for so many Years.

    So much more could be said, Its just a very sad day here a the range---Scott Pieper

    P.S. As I get more information I will post it here or on the Club Website

    Just got word-- Ron's Obituary is listed at Baue.com , visitation will be this Saturday at the Baue Funeral home 3950 West Clay, St. Charles, Mo. Memorials can be made to the salvation Army or the NRA in Ron's name if you would like.

    So sad to hear. I always looked forward to stopping by Ron's shop whenever I went to St, Louis matches. He was always so friendly and helpful. Prayers for his family.

    My heart sinks

    To hear this news.

    I had not been to St.Louis all but 3 times I believe but one of the highlights was stopping and talking shooting, politics, and poker. Many times Ron would ask about our politics in Canada.....

    RIP Ron
