This morning I was contacted by a friend of mine who has been a close student of Mors with the very sad news that Mors has been diagnosed with cancer and may not have long left. When I went to post on another forum, I found that Don Kevilus had posted this on Facebook and that there was already a thread on BushcraftUK. https://www.facebook.com/don.kevilus Don Kevilus is with Mors Kochanski and 3 others. Yesterday at 14:38 · With a heavy heart I am informing the greater bushcraft and outdoor community .That my dear friend and wise Yoda, Mors Kochanski has been diagnosed with mesothelioma and is very ill. He is truly the patron saint of bushcraft. His books, videos and teachings of how to be comfortable and enjoy the wilderness has touched us all. So at request of the family if you would like to send support and encouragement.I'm sure he would love a card or email. Contact information below; Morskochanski at gmail (he is not in the habit of checking but we will try to do better) Mors Kochanski 55205 Range Road 152 Yellowhead County T7E 3R8 Canada He’s a pretty special fellow to us all!
