    In Memory of Mr Ray Jordan

    Thursday, August 7, 2014 There are people who enter our life and leave their mark forever.  Such is the case with our dear friend and fellow hobbyist, Ray Jordan.  As in all of Ray’s passions, he entered the koi hobby like a boy jumping into the swimming hole on the first day of summer- with joy and enthusiasm.

    In Memory of Charles Raymond "Chuck" Poppe

    Monday, March 31, 2014. It is with heavy and saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Mr Charles Raymond "Chuck" Poppe.  The contributions made by Chuck to the AKJA, his local Koi Clubs and throughout the Koi hobby, we cannot even come close to acknowleding here.  Just let it be known, that we now have a very large void within our hobby, our community and our hearts.   Our thoughts and prayers are with Doris and their family.  May God bless.
