I have been informed that John Noveske, master of the AR and the founder of Noveske Rifleworks, was killed in an auto accident yesterday in Oregon.
Here is a statement released by Noveske Rifleworks, via Soldier Systems:
Noveske Rifleworks would ask you to remember the passing of our founder, John Noveske, who died Friday, January 4th 2013 in an automobile accident.
John planned for all eventualities, and wanted to ensure any changes would be as seamless as possible for our customers, dealers, suppliers, employees and friends. While this will be a trying time, we do not expect a change in the day to day operations of Noveske Rifleworks. We would like to thank you for your support as we deal with our loss, and would ask that instead of flowers, you consider a donation to a cause we will announce at later date.
John was more than just the founder of Noveske Rifleworks, he was a loving husband and father, and caring friend.

I’d heard the name, but wasn’t firsthand familiar with his company or products.
Sounds like he was willing to die for his right to not wear a seatbelt.
Yep. My father in law was the same way. Nobody was going to tell him what to do in that regard
I’ve actually survived an unwanted ejection from a crashing vehicle, through a closed window. God watches out for children and fools. It made a believer out of me.
RIP, magnificent rifles.
He was a great guy who made magnificent weapons.
They had a baby not too long ago, this is so, so sad...
