Exclamation Ralph Martone

It is with deep sadness and condolences that we pass along this information…
As most of you know, Ralph Martone is the current PA NWTF Chapter president, and was a past PGC Commissioner.- He posted the following Sunday on FaceBook:
It is with the greatest sadness that I share the tragic news of our son, Michael's, passing. Yesterday he was killed when the side-by-side he was driving rolled over. Our granddaughter, Maddie, was a passenger. She suffered serious injuries and was life flighted to Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh. She has several fractures in her head and face and lacerations on her right arm. She is expected to make a full recovery.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to all the emergency responders, doctors, friends and family that have reached out to us offering their help and condolences in this difficult time.
-Ralph & Denise-Martone
The following update was posted today:
We are overwhelmed by prayers and offers by our friends and NWTF family. A sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU.-

11-year old Maddie is proving to be a tough and resilient young lady. She is waiting to learn if the skull fractures will require surgery. She-has had many stitches to repair lacerations in her face and arm.-

We are hoping she will be discharged today. But she will be required to stay in PA for at least 2-weeks for follow-up before heading home to South Carolina.
I’m sure Ralph would appreciate your prayers during this time of grieving for the family and recovery for his granddaughter.

Not the news I wanted to read when I opened this thread. One of the very best commissioners to have had a seat on the PGC BOC. Thoughts extended to the family in this difficult time.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
