Hello All,

   Well yesterday I got the bad new from a friend that Legend, Jim Straight passed away.  Most probably know Jim as a icon in this hobby of gold prospecting.  Jim has been a great friend and mentor of mine.  Without Jim's help back in the day, I wouldn't be where I am now. 

God Bless you Jim, I will truly miss you!

Your friend and Brother in Christ,

Rob Allison

Jim was a tremendous inspiration and freely gave of his knowledge.  He was always ready to share and visit.  I remember sitting with him on many occasions and listening to him sharing his knowledge.  He was always happy but was willing to correct a wrong when he saw it.  I will miss the many conversations I had with him.  Prayers for his daughter and family.  Dianne and I will always visting with him.............a Brother in Christ

I last saw and spoke with Jim a bit over a year ago. He spent several hours on both Saturday and Sunday in the ICMJ booth with me at the Pomona GPAA show. He was a good man and wrote many articles for the ICMJ. It is sad to see him go.
