A Sad Day...passing of Greybear

It is with a very heavy heart that I let you all know that my Dad and best friend has left this earth. John " Greybear" Giblin passed away peacefully in his sleep last night after a several month battle with brain cancer. He got his last wish which was to see all his grandchildren one last time. For those interested in service information, please pm me. We will hold a good old Irish wake later this Spring to celebrate his life.

Greybear Leather will continue but we will take a pause as we honor his memory. Dad got to attend the event at Ft. Roberdeau in October and he said just this week how great it had been to see so many old friends and reminisce about good times past.

Greybear Jr.
