Jim Marrs: Journalist and author. (Check bottom for credit)

The R&H pays tribute to journalist and author Jim Marrs, who died yesterday (2/8/17) aged 73.

The Rake & Herald is very saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Marrs, who we understand had been undergoing dialysis at his home in Texas for a number of months.

Over the years, Marrs, who, among other things during his career, worked as an investigative reporter for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, wrote 12 books covering a range of fortean and related subjects, including UFOs and extraterrestrial contact; remote viewing; secret societies; 9/11; and the New World Order.

However, Marrs will perhaps be best remembered for Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy, his investigation into the 1963 assassination of JFK that is generally considered essential reading for anyone interested in the topic, even if they still believe in magic bullets.

Marrs was also a highly entertaining and personable speaker, who punctuated his lectures, presentations and media appearances with a wit and warmth that made listening to him a pleasure regardless of the subject at hand and one's own personal take on it.

For this particular hack, Marrs' voice was one that I was always happy to hear.

Thankfully, there are numeorus videos of him available to watch freely online, such as the following presentation he gave in 2011 on remote viewing and aliens.

From what he says, it seems unlikely that the concept of physical death would have held much fear for him.

Jim Marrs, we thank you, salute you and wish you all the best for the journey ahead.

RIP Jim Marrs, 5/12/43 to 2/8/17.
