WOW - so sorry to hear. That’s a very young age to die from prostate cancer, especially to have had it for a long time. A very talented guy - who leaves behind a legacy that will last a long time. I’m sure Rush will mention this today...
Condolences to the family during this time of grieving.
Wow - so young! I enjoyed the American Assassin - Mitch Rapp novels. Would that we had such people in the field. RIP Vince Young.
A very, very sad day, RIP Vince. You will be missed and your family is in our hearts.
Too young to leave, and possibly my favorite writer.
Oh no. He was a terrific writer and a good man. Also had some excellent connections in the world of Intel.
Prayers for his family.
I really enjoyed the writings of this talented author. He will be missed. Rest in peace Vince.
Very sad to read this. Loved his books and always enjoyed listening to him on the Hugh Hewitt show. Condolences to his family.
Sad news, terrible loss. Prayers to his family.
Was sad to hear this on local radio today.
Met him at a book signing once. He was a really nice guy.
I love his books and will miss him. Very sad news. RIP. Prayers for his family.
I loved them all...
RIP Vince... taken WAY too soon.
Crushed. Just crushed. Huge fan...
OH NO! Prayers to his family. He was one of the good guys!
So sad. Way too young....
How horrible. No mor Mitch Rapp. So young.
How old was he?
That’s a shame. I’ve read some of his novels and greatly enjoyed the character of Mitch Rapp. Rapp was my idea of a real man, tough as nails, possessed of high intelligence, and devoted to his country.
I met him at a book signing years ago.
