For many in the AAFTA Field Target world & especially those on the West coast knew Jim Cyran as the guy always willing to help out, have a conversation about the game he loved so much ... FIELD TARGET
Jim was my shooting partner over the last 10 years and was instrumental in the forming of the SVFTC.  Jim traveled every year up and down the west coast, trips to national events threw out the country in the last 10+ years.
While not a frequent poster here on the  GTA name 22JIM he was very well known by many on the AG forums.

Jim Had moved to OHIO last fall where he was born and raised to live out his days ( @ 74 iirc ) and had returned out west for one last Duck / Goose hunt with his buddies.  Jim suffered a massive heart attack while doing what he loved ( Shooting ) with the Friends he loved ... What a Way to go !!

God speed my good friend   :'(

So very sad.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jim at several SVFTC matches and even partnered with him during one shoot.  He was very approachable and was an extraordinary shooter with a modest, gentle, soft spoken demeanor.  He was quick to offer praise when you made a good shot but allowed your misses to pass almost unnoticed unless you asked him for advice, which he had the gift to deliver it in a supportive manner without being critical.  It was a privilege to know and shoot with him.  I wish we had more time together.
