Sad to see him go. My brothers and I used to visit his gun shop. Since our last name is Carey, he used to give us 'the family discount'. We would always joke about that when we stopped there. He was a good guy. I stopped at a yard sale there years later and bought the 'Carey's Gun Shop ' sign, which I still have and wanted to keep in the family. Him and his wife were nice people.
