Photog friend passes away, his EOS gear for sale..

I learned last night that my friend Bob died from a brain tumor last night. He was ill for the last 9 months prior to his death. He had gotten married during this time as well. His wife contacted me when he was getting near the end and asked my help in disposing of his photo gear. He was an EOS gear nut, shooting only nature photos. He won many awards at our large photo club and had a pic published last year in the nature magazine that I think came out of shutterbug?
I have not inventoried anything for her yet and I dont know if some stuff will be sold to any others in the club but from memory I will list what I recall from shooting with him. I expect to have a complete list in 2 weeks. BTW his wife is going to have his ashes put into a lens case! A photograper to the end.
EOS1n with booster maybe 2 of them?

I am sure I only know of less than 1/3 of what he has. I will post things here first
prior to putting them on Ebay...Oh he was also an exprofessional drummer and just prior to his illness bought a pro set of drums and a pro set of electronic drums(no details about them) if your a drummer in Atlanta area contact me. He was well stocked with the latest audio/video gear as well, not sure what will be happening with that yet.

I'm very sorry to hear that; that is extremely sad. My condolences.

I'm sorry too. I don't personally have any use for EOS gear or drums, but might be able to find someone who does. I'm in the Atlanta area. If I find someone who might be interested, I'll let you know.
