Re: Hans Koenig Died

So sad to see this, he was a good man..
I first met him in the Hualapais w/ Brendan
McGraw and had many other occasions to
get together..He even showed me his collection
when he lived in SG..He was a stand-up guy
and not a jerk like so many other G&F officers can be..
I'm real sad to see this..
