Just got word…Been in the loop for a couple of days. Last night, we lost a long time customer, and really good fishing buddy. Glen Martilla, aka Pops, died last night, due to complications of liver cancer. Yes, another cancer victim.
The prognosis was 2 to 3 years to live. He got just a couple of months. He died in his sleep, with heavy medication, from what we understand. He, and his friend Rich, fished with us often. All kinds of jabs and sarcasm over the years, including the famous “stoned rat” tattoo.
In light of the day. Rest in Peace Pops! Perhaps see you down the road on a stream someday.
