Wow, thats to bad. Just looked into his forum history and he was last on our site on November 03, 2014, about two weeks before he passed away.
Sad, but good to know. After being around so long online I often wonder about active members that seem to just up and disappear.
Every now and then I will try and PM or email such members and a lot of times I hear back that they have just been busy with things that come up in life.
Other times I don't hear anything back and I just keep wondering.
Thanks for sharing Dab!
