Default R.I.P Johnny Smith "eresjohnny" UPDATE For Funeral

R.I.P Johnny Smith “eresjohnny”

It is with great sadness that we bring news of the loss of Johnny Smith. At 05:00 AM today Johnny lost his fight after a long illness; he battled strong to the end.

Johnny did so much for the airgun scene and brought many newcomers to the shooting world with his unending enthusiasm for his beloved Worcester Air Rifles. His final course at the English Open testament to the skill & wizardry for course setting that very few possess.

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends at this very difficult time.

Goodbye Johnny, rest in peace my friend. We will all miss you.

Johnny's funeral will be held at Worcester Crematorium on Thursday 21st August at 11.30 with the wake taking place shortly after at the Bear Public House. PM me if you need any information.

my thoughts go out to Johnny's family sorry to hear the news Johnny did alot for the shooting industry and a fine job at Worcester Air Rifles. He never complained about his long illness just carried on. RIP
