I’ve got a scary notion that’s how they’re going to find most of us. Make a last stand where ever you can I guess, eh?

53 is way to young. Do you know what caused his passing?

Prayers that the good Lord will comfort his family in their loss. Also that he will comfort you in the loss of a friend.

Very sad to hear of his passing. JB motivated a lot of us a couple years ago to get involved. The anti Illegal Alien movement would not be what it is today without JB.

We’re on for dinner, then. Even if you choose the most expensive reataurant here. Just watch for an insane fool who looks like Theoden of Rohan.

Filet mignon wrapped in enough bacon to send a Muslim straight to Hell? Taters and pintos done over a smoky mesquite fire? Fresh home-made bread? Live Western music that won the Roy Rogers seal of approval?

Welcome to Fantasy Island, love — and the reason I fight on.

I will be in continual prayer for Jackelope Breeder's family and friends.

I can't begin to express the gratitude I hold for this dear man! He was one of my "mentors" here on FR. In my life alone, his "ripple" is still ongoing. His wisdom, his love of this country, his unflinching determination to educate people concerning illegal immigration, his devotion to changing illegal status quo, his fledged steadfastness... all reasons I admired him greatly!

To all his family and friends--- I will be praying for all of you!

I have fond memories of Hank Dillon. Number one, he was one of my favorite posters on Free Republic until some overzealous mod banned him for talking about the acclaimed and successful Minuteman Project while it was in its planning stages. I remember helping Hank scout out a few of the Minuteman Project observation posts ahead of the event, checking a few trails, drop sights, pickup sights, etc. He seemed to know all of the illegal alien trails and habits around here.

Hank and I worked in the same building so I saw him often and we would talk about things. The last thing I remember talking to him about, which was my last day at work there (I've since moved to Utah) was how excited he was to be remarrying. He was happy and we talked about that instead of our usual talk about politics and illegal immigration.

When I was president of a Republican Club in the area and we had a vacancy for VP, Hank stepped up and took that position when others didn't want to be bothered with actually DOING something instead of just listening to people talk about people doing something.

Hank was someone who would go and try to actually do something to right the wrongs that he saw. He was a doer, not a complainer. He was also a person who could work well within and around rival groups. When the groups against illegal immigration split apart, and then split again, and kept feuding, Hank was still somewhat of a liaison between them, trying to make peace to hold the overall effort together.

Hank was a great guy and he will be missed.

How true that is...I loved his common sense, his great sense of humor, his creativity and his patriotism.
