"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."
Several of us at the Gun Gallery have had the pleasure of not only doing business with John, but had become friends with him as well. We feel awful at this loss. John, was an innovator and always on the edge of what's new with our industry. Like their statement says, I have no doubt that little will change at Noveske. He seemed to surround himself with others who, like him, were motivated and passionate about their business.
