Exclamation Kablewizard is Riding With the Angels...

Jim "Kablewizard" Krylowicz
Feb 14, 2013

Military Funeral Honors will be held at 1000 hrs on 8 March

Apache Junction, Arizona

VFW Post 9399

Jim was one of the first members of IRV2 since its inception in 2000 and served as a Moderator for many years here on this forum.

He has attended multiple iRV2 rallies all over the US. He will be remembered as the WagonMaster of the iRV2 Grand Canyon Rally along with being in charge of the "door prizes" at many other iRV2 rallies.

A very important part of his life was spent as a Patriot Guard escorting many Fallen Soldiers to their final resting place. He was a retired US Army Staff Sargent that loved this country and the men & women who have served for our Country.

Jim has battled cancer for a couple of years, but developed some issues with his heart and it finally gave up. (I think he just gave so much to many people that he actually gave too much of it away!).

RIP Jim - You are already missed...

I met Jim about 8 years ago in a Casa Grande, AZ Dairy Queen at a gas station. Jim knew that I was in the area and he reached out and contacted me. I was thankful that we were able to get together if only for a short period of time however obvious to me was that Jim was a special kind of person. We sat and shared a cup or 2 of coffee and bite to eat Although the conversation fades in memory, his love for the iRV2 website and how he could make a difference was on his mind.

I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the family and I will pray that the Lord opens his hand and welcomes Jim to his reward. Rest in Peace my friend, you will be missed.

My heart is so saddened this morning to hear the news of Jim's passing. He, Cherie and the entire family are dear friends and we have so many memories over the years of precious times spent with them.

As soon as we have more information, we can put up a proper memorial page for him.

Jim joined iRV2 on Feb. 8, 2000 almost at iRV2's inception, making him one of our Charter Members. His last post was on Nov. 13, 2012, visiting the forum as he was able.

We hadn't heard from Jim after his Nov. post, so I emailed him and he replied on Jan. 23, 2013. His cancer had returned and he had heart and kidney problems. He fought as long as he could.

May God rest his soul.

Jim will be missed by those of us who have been around IRV2 since the beginning. I had the pleasure of meeting him personally at a campground in 2001 and we served on the forum staff together for several years. Rest well, Jim...

The Patriot guard is IMHO a very important function.
I know he will be honored as he honored so many others.
