Dear Members and Friends, It is my sad duty to tell you of the passing of a valued Member of DMS. On Friday, August 24, 2018, Jason Barrowclough, our friend, passed on.

Jason began his journey with us as a Junior Member. Inspired, he went on to excel in his academic career, graduating with his Bachelor's Degree in Geology from the University of Delaware.

This path made him many friends, all of whom enjoyed chatting with him about rocks and minerals, putting together cool show exhibits, and volunteering for the Junior Booth.

He was a fixture at our Annual Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show for over a decade. Each year, show dealers requested his expert sales knowledge and courteous manner in encouraging rockhounds in their pursuits.

There is so much more to say about Jason. If you'd like to share a good memory here on our Facebook page, please do. If you'd like to share with the family, or attend his services, here is a link:…/delawareonline/obituary.aspx…
