BREAKING NEWS: Lynn Insko Dies UPDATED

I just spotted this obituary on Facebook for Mr. Lynn Insko,  well known as a superb needlepoint belt finisher.  I thought he was the founder of Hill Top Leather which carries own under the leadership of Glynn Broner but I was wrong.  Mr. Insko had his own business which Hill Top Leather took over.  See Glynn's comment below.  Sorry for the misunderstanding!

UPDATE:  Just to clarify, the founder of Hill Top Leather Shop is not deceased. The owner and founder of Hill Top Leather Shop is Glynn Broner. Mr. Lynn Insko is the deceased and had his own business finishing needlepoint belts for 30+ years. Mr. Insko contacted Glynn in the spring of 2014 about taking over his needlepoint business as he wished to retire. Mr. Insko was a great mentor, teacher, and friend of Glynn and Hill Top Leather Shop took over Mr. Insko's business completely in June of 2014. Mr. Insko was a wonderful gentleman and a fine teacher. We will be forever grateful for his generosity in allowing us to continue his work and for the opportunity to know him for the brief period of time that we were given.
