R.I.P Volodymyr and Marina Butsky
I would like to express its sincere condolences to the families of Volodymyr and Marina Butsky.
No words can aptly express my sorrow to this tragedy of two friends passing away in a tragic diving accident, taken in the prime of their lives, and leaving behind to beautiful daughters.
This is an unbelievable loss that will be felt by me for years to come.
There will always be an empty place in my heart with the loss of these two great people who emigrated from the Ukraine originally from Poltava to find a better life here and to fully embrace the American ways of life and traditions to become the patriots that they were fighting for our rights whenever and where ever they were threatened.
We spent many hours together on and off the range participating in events both social and fighting for a cause.
Vlad's unending enthusiasm for life and what it brings will be missed. His sharp retorts, his big smile, his easy going can-do attitude. All this and more, will be missed.
Marina's great attitude and willingness to try anything, her great smile, enthusiasm, beauty inside and out, calm demeanor under stress, these things will all be missed.
They were such a big part of my life in the shooting sports and now they are gone.
I'm stunned, shocked, sad.
May God Rest Your Souls In Peace
