A true relic Hunter has passed

Gene Cooley passed away last week. I believe he was 93 or 94. I had the pleasure of relic hunting with him several times these last two years. My first ever relic hunt was with him
almost 45 years ago. He was a Nautilus man then and a Nautilus man when he died. Found enough Civil War relics to fill a museum. I remember him coming out of the woods with a pouch full of relics and still complaining about there being "too much trash". Hence my user name. Gonna miss that ole boy. He was a heck of a good guy. He left me and countless others in this neck of the woods with a lot of good memories.

Always sad to hear of another passing on. Sounds like Gene Cooley was a real character and a true Nautilus man. His memory will live on through those who knew him...

Happy Hunting
