Holster maker R.J. Hedley has passed away…



It is with great personal sadness that I announce the passing of another good friend.

The following is a notice from the RJ Hedley family via the
L.W. Seecamp forum:

One of the Greatest Holster Makers that ever lived, Robert J Hedley, (1931-2009)



On Friday September 4, 2009 we lost a great man, father, friend, teacher, and holster maker. We thank you all for your constant thoughts and prayers that brought us peace and hope through the many months of Dad’s illness. But we thank you most of all for the respect and love you showed to our Dad. He made a lot of genuine friendships through the forum. Services will be held at Kersey’s Funeral Home in Auburndale, FL on Thursday September 10th, at 6pm. Our family is asking that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to the Good Shepard Hospice, they were a true blessing on that final day. www.goodshepherdhospice.org
