    I met Vaughn when he was working at Virginia Surplus. I served with him on the Excutive Board of the Arrowhead Chapter of Muskies Inc. I also had the chance to spend time fishing with him for Muskies on Vermilion. I would also frequently run in to him fishing for muskies in his “Little Red Boat” on Vermilion. He will be missed. My deepest sympathies to his family.
