Our thoughts are with the family, friends and fans of the LoCash Cowboys today after long-time fiddle player Ryan “Troop” Jones passed away yesterday. He had been with the band since 2005, and took on the challenge of playing quite a few instruments for the group including the mandolin, fiddle, and acoustic guitar. He was admitted to hospital earlier this year with a serious ulcer that later lead to contracting pneumonia.
“Today is a sad day in the Locash world. We lost Ryan “Troop” Jones…our Brother & our Best Friend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Troop will live forever in our hearts.”
No funeral plans have yet been announced.
