A good man

Recommended Posts

A good man was lost last night. I spent many hours and days sittin on a stool in his shop, listening and learning. He always had good advice if asked a question, and gave support if needed. I will always be appreciative of you John Jr. Decker. RIP my friend. And please pray for his family and loved ones.

That is a beautiful tribute, DIY, and we've probably sat on the same stool and crossed paths in there. Junior was a great man. When we moved to Flagstaff almost 10 years ago, I decided to get back into archery, so I checked out BBA based on a Phoenix friend's recommendation. Junior was extremely helpful and I'll never forget him telling me "I'm not in this to make money. I'm doing this because I want to help get people into archery." Junior gave so much to the archery community in northern Arizona and he was a big supporter of the local conservation groups. BBA regulars were family. He always had a hug for my daughter and treated my son like a friend and a young man. They both got so much swag, its unreal. He always had time for kids and he always made them feel special. My wife never complained when I spent money there because she knew how well we were all treated, including when she finally bought her first bow. I know my daughter will take this news hard when my wife picks her up from school this afternoon. Yes, RIP, Junior. You will be missed more than words can ever express.

Jr was a great man and a great friend, Rest In Peace old man. I know you're at peace knowing the shop you dedicated your life to was left in great hands.

I didn't know Jr as well as a lot of you did but did make an attempt to visit him in the shop when I was in need of anything while in Flagstaff. There are plenty of people in our community that are grieving the loss of a good man and friend. Thoughts and well wishes to his family. God Speed.
