Yea, Mike, you just had to tell this story. I wonder if the family wanted you to tell the world. After all, you saw his death notice and "accident" in an obit, and then you probably contacted the paper out in Idaho to "get the story" to tell everyone here in York. Only if the family agreed have you been professional. I suspect you never even asked for permission. My sympathy to the family and friends of this special and dynamic young man who apparently brought joy to many.

How sad.....If anything....the only consolation is that this young man died doing what he loved. I am so sorry to read that his father is the one who found him.
Sympathy to the family and may this young man Rest in Peace.

Sorry, "John" but the word is "there." I see that "Mike" has been rating my post. Apparently, you miss the my meaning. I said that it was a terible loss for his family to lose such a dynamic guy. My point, however, is that the "journalist" is only interested in the details of his death. Why not interview a few poeple who knew him who could say something about what a great guy and guide he was? Why not interview some folks from out there in Idaho who knew him? No, Mike has to say that the pilot thought it was "creepy" and how John's father obviously suffered at discovering his son. Once again, I rail at the lack of professionalism at the YDR, Hanover Evening Sun, and the York Dispatch. Did you ever think that his family might not have wanted the details of such a horrible death and discovery by the man's father the lead of the article? No, my "poster-friends" you all fail to see that Mike and his fellow "journalist wannabees" only want to write the sensationalistic pieces. They have absolutely no concern for privacy, reputation, or sensitivity UNLESS its about themselves. Indeed, I suspect that the ratings on my post are by Mike and his buddies themselves. Like I said, my spmpathy to the young man's family. If my desire to make journalists responsible and force them to be accountable makes me a "quack" John, then I'll be happy to put on a duck suit and quack away..........

Um genius...obviously the family talked to the reporter...which indicates they knew there would be a story. Many families talk to reporters after tragic accidents...knowing that there is going to be a story from the said interview.

The Sherif was called. Hard to then keep it a private matter. I don't think the article was out of line. sounds like you are jealous and envious of the small town reporter at YDR.

This man died living out a life style that many men only dream of, and few have the courage and fortitude to attempt. May his soul be at peace in the quiet wilderness that he deserves. I also extend my most sincere condolences to his family. Truly a loss from everything I have read.

Our family was not contacted for the writing of this article, or the similar one written in the Challis Messenger, Idaho. It was heartbreaking to read, and to see that our son and brother made the front page of the York newspaper in this way.
The last thing my brother would want would be for people to argue about this. We respectfully request that you simply keep our family in your prayers. Thank you.

A man has lost his life, his family is in mourning that cannot be measured nor imagined. Let the subject drop and be done with it. My deepest sympathy to all Mr. Trone's family and friends.

How this young man died, though tragic, is not the important thing. The important thing is how he lived.

I hope the family finds peace.

This is EXACTLY what I thought, and sadly so. Once again the York newspapers have caused more pain, and are not accountable. It played out as I thought. My prayers to the Trone family. Unfortunately, however, I KNOW that Mike is smiling like the Chesire cat. Once again, this wannabe journalist has caused more pain. He could not be happier.
You see he's just a "little" man who thinks that he makes himself taller by standing on the "emotional" shoulders of others.

Why is it heartbreaking? They wrote a nice story memorializing someone who lived the life that most would never dream of living. I see nothing wrong with it.

I think mourners are better off reading the guest book in the obituaries. Not coming to chat rooms.
