    Default R.I.P. John Noveske

    John Noveske was an innovator in AR-15 world. He created and sold some of the finest AR's available. Tragically he was killed in a car accident last night. He leaves behind a wife and three kids. Truly a big loss for the firearms community.

    Sad news indeed. He will be remembered fondly by many and his products will stay in service for years to come.
    Foolishness is a moral category, not an intellectual one.

    John Noveske was only 36. He started in the AR game at a young age. His kids are all pre-teen. Noveske Rifleworks Facebook posted this this morning..
    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.

    The Noveske facebook page said it was the founder and looking elswhere it sounds like he was driving an 80's land cruiser and lost control hitting several boulders in a single vehicle accident. Very sad
