John Noveske RIP

The founder and owner of Noveske Rifleworks, John Noveske was killed yesterday evening in a car accident. Noveske makes some of the finest rifles in the industry.

I met him at SHOT Show and he was a really nice guy. Rest in Peace.

It sucks. John would actually take the time to talk on the phone and answer emails when someone had a question. Helluva nice guy and built an outstanding gun.

Damn. Had the pleasure to speak with him once, seemed like a really squared away and straight-up guy with a beautiful family.
RIP sir.

From the Oregon State Police......

Fatal Traffic Crash - Highway 260 west of Grants Pass - 01/05/13
Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into Friday night's single vehicle fatal traffic crash along Highway 260 (Lower River Road) west of Grants Pass that resulted in the death of a Grants Pass man.

According to Sergeant Tyler Lee, on January 4, 2013 at approximately 9:13 p.m., a 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser driven by JOHN NOVESKE, age 36, from Grants Pass, was westbound on Highway 260 near El Camino Way. As the vehicle negotiated a right curve, it traveled across the oncoming lane onto the dirt highway shoulder until it struck two large boulders. The vehicle rolled and NOVESKE was ejected.

NOVESKE, who is the owner of a local rifle manufacturing company, was not using safety restraints and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

OSP troopers from the Grants Pass and Central Point offices are continuing the investigation. Trooper Ryan Neuenschwander is the lead investigator.

The man made a heck of an impact on the industry and set some pretty high standards. He will definitely be missed.

Rest in peace.

Sucks.

So young and so successful. Innovator who seriously raised the bar when it came to the quality and standards of weapons in the market.
